The Lioness program was a real CIA and US military initiative during the Iraq War, when a corps of female soldiers was sent to Iraq to fight the so-called insurgents and fight alongside the Marines in the field (via ACLU). In 2008, a documentary about Team Lioness was released documenting the exploits of a rarely seen female combat squad (via USA Today).
The Paramount+ show will offer a theatrical tale of Team Lioness from writer/executive producer Taylor Sheridan, with new star power provided by Oscar, Emmy, BAFTA and Golden Globe winner Nicole Kidman, who is also set to serve as executive producer. Previously, Kidman has worked with the likes of Stanley Kubrick and Baz Luhrmann before starring in television performances such as her highly acclaimed role on the HBO series Big Little Lies and the 2021 Hulu drama Nine Perfect Strangers. She recently played a pivotal role in last year’s Viking epic Scandinavian. Zoë Saldanha is also an executive producer on Lioness.
