Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Peter Berg, THE SELECTION: SPECIAL OPERATIONS EXPERIMENT is a one-hour reality series that follows six U.S. military special operation veterans as they push 30 men and women with no military background through the most intense physical and mental challenge of their lives. Trained and led by veterans of the Navy SEALs, Green Berets and Army Rangers, these instructors drive those who are willing to push themselves to the limits of the human body and mind. With the instructors challenging them both mentally and physically, including tear gas, interrogation simulation and psychological warfare among other tests, the participants are driven to the point of breaking and are able to remove themselves from the program at any stage. This is not a competition series - no cash rewards - only a test against oneself to see if the mind has the will and strength to push the body to complete the challenges. Instructing the civilian participants are six of the finest combat veterans that range across various U.S. Special Operations units including: Veteran Navy SEALs: Marcus Capone, Ray Care and Sean Haggerty; veteran Special Forces Green Berets Donnie Bowen and Bert Kuntz, and veteran Army Ranger Tyler Grey.
On Thursday, January 26, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, History premiered the season finale of THE SELECTION: SPECIAL OPERATIONS EXPERIMENT. In the season ender, "March of Tears," the remaining candidates are required to complete a field training exercise, commonly known in the military as an FTX. Everything they have learned up to this point must be used in order to pass the different stages of this FTX. They will face the most difficult challenge of their life, and only those who finish, will pass The Selection.
