Bruce Campbell to Headline ‘Burn Notice’ Prequel

Bruce Campbell to headline Burn Notice prequelJeffrey Donovan is set to direct the upcoming Burn Notice movie starring Bruce Campbell. Shooting will begin in January on location in Bogota, Columbia. The two-hour movie will air on USA Network in Spring 2011.

The prequel, set in late 2005, begins after a faction of Colombian rebels makes trouble for the locally stationed military platoon, with Lieutenant Commander Sam Axe (Bruce Campbell) being sent down to advise. As the mission unfolds, Sam begins to uncover the dark secrets of the area, learning the truth about sacrifice, deception, and ultimately what's worth fighting for.

Burn Notice creator Matt Nix will write and executive produce. Jeffrey Donovan and Bruce Campbell will also serve as executive producers on the Fox Television Studios project alongside Mikkel Bondesen ("Burn Notice").

Burn Notice continues to be one of the hottest shows on television, as the #1 scripted show on basic cable this past summer averaging 3.4 million in P25-54, 3.1 million in P18-49 and 7.3 million total viewers.

        @Skywise Season 2 is probably considered the weakest season of the show. However, it really delves into the mythology building in season 3, so if you're not liking that aspect, dunno how the rest will go over for you.

          I really suck for not watching this show because i am a huge fan of Bruce Campbell (I mean who isnt right?). I need to do some catching up. I think after i get thru lost i will begin Burn Notice. Altho i gotta say that i am only on season 2 of Lost toward the end and its already sort of irritating and zany. Anyone please...should i keep watching or just jump to Burn Notice?
