  1. What else we know so far…David is as hot as always, and this could be Booth in all the pictures above…lol.

  2. Yes it simply looks like Booth is on a new mission! This pilot is taking quite a while to film it seems? Or maybe it just seems that way because there is no Bones to think about anymore! DB is away from the family for quite a bit. Maybe they are not in NO anymore? Who knows!

  3. From what I can gather from Instagram posts, DB is definitely still in NO and his family is in L.A. Jaime has been posting pictures of Bella and horses on the weekend, and just this morning she posted Jaden in a high school hockey game. DB has been commenting on her posts.

    It is a long time to be away, but it sounds like they have been filming night and day and all through the weekends, so he probably barely has a chance to breathe. Even his mom commented on the Insta post with the dog, and said “Love getting your pictures. Looking great.”

    I’m curious what will happen if the show gets picked up…will it still be filmed in NO? A pilot is one thing, but filming a whole series out of town would be tough, I would think.

  4. I think DB has only been NO for two weeks going by the announcement of the project for him?

    Pilots always take longer. A month sounds right.

    I was wondering if the interiors will be done in LA studio with the exterior on location 3 or 4 days? If it get picked up for series.

  5. I’d like to know why Jim Caviezel left (as do many other people judging by comments online)…I wonder if that story will ever come out?

  6. Yeah who knows? All I know about him is he is very Catholic, basically Booth in real life, but that may have nothing to do with it. I bet that happens alot in pilot season though and we don’t hear about it, could be since DB is coming off of Bones and Buffy news, it hit the press?

    • Yep it does, cast change all the time, sometimes even after the pilot has been shot….Even with Bones’ The Finder they changed the female cast after they shot the pilot when it went to series.

  7. Yeah, some people are saying that he probably balked at love scenes he was being asked to do, but others are saying that he would have known what was required in that department before he signed on for the role, unless the producers changed the rules after he got there.

    So who knows? But, can we have a moment to mourn the fact that DB will be in an onscreen romantic relationship with someone other than Emily? :((((

  8. So who knows? But, can we have a moment to mourn the fact that DB will be in an onscreen romantic relationship with someone other than Emily? :((((

    Yes that is sad I’m not ready for it, and it will be even worse if it is that girl from Mad Men. She is awful. Maybe she’s been taking acting lessons. I would guess THAT is more likely a reason that JC quit. But you would think they would have replaced her, unless of course she’s got a ‘in’ with the pilot that trumped him? DB hasn’t been posting pictures of him with the female cast. Maybe he knows that part will be hard for his fans?
    I’m sure that changing out the lead also set back filming. Because anything that was completed with JC had to be redone with DB. I thought DB was scheduled to make a trip to Australia in April. Perhaps I got that wrong though.

  9. Maybe they should recast the female lead as Michaela! Lol ok that would be even weirder than a random actress! I’d love it if DB could get one or more actors like TJ or a squint to be cast on his new show. At least we’d get to see them some more even if they are playing different people!

  10. I love Michaela, but I wouldn’t want to see DB getting all romantic with her…lol. Tamara Taylor also popped into my mind, or Jessica Capshaw (Rebecca). Oh my, what if they had cast Kathryn Winnick (Hannah)??? Yes, a random actress is better than anyone from Bones, other than ED!

    I would love to see other Bones folks on the show…TJ, Pej, John Boyd, Michael Grant Terry (Wendell…wouldn’t he be a great Seal?) So many good possibilities!

    If the show gets picked up as a series, I think we should all make our guesses how long it will be before DB directs an episode. He posted this last night:

    We meet again…Seals.

  11. “David is as hot as always, and this could be Booth in all the pictures above…lol.”

    Lol, I cannot see those pics of David and not think how “Boothy” he looks!!

    “The dog, Dita, is a SEAL dog too. Respect”
    Love the dog too!

  12. “I’m curious what will happen if the show gets picked up…will it still be filmed in NO? A pilot is one thing, but filming a whole series out of town would be tough, I would think.”

    DB may have given us the answer to this in one of his Instagram posts from today. He said “French Quarter for Liberia…Seals.” So, if the pilot is about a Seals operation in Liberia, then future episodes (if the show gets picked up) would probably be filmed somewhere else.

    A post shared by Nick Irving (@officialreaper33) on

    So this Ranger (Nick Irving…@officialreaper33) who was apparently consulting on DB’s Seals show has been posting Instagram pics in the last couple of days but hiding faces. I’m not sure if these are related to the Seals show or not. In the second pic above it looks like that’s actor AJ Buckley in the photo (second from left) and his face is shown, but everyone else is grayed out.

    I wonder if he doesn’t have permission to post photos of some people (like DB?) DB has been “liking” most of his posts though.

    It will be very interesting to see if this Seals pilot gets picked up. Has DB ever done a TV pilot that failed?

  14. I saw a report on CBS morning news about how the Seals are dealing with drug issues and how publicity is hurting the Seal mission. That former Seals are cashing in by writing books, being consultants on movies etc. and revealing secrets and this stuff is hurting their mission. They did not make note that their own company has a Seal TV pilot in the works! But I thought it was interesting.

  15. That’s a good point NWChic. Are we letting other countries/organizations know too much about our inner workings?! That could be dangerous! I want my shows to be realistic, but maybe not TOO realistic!!

  16. David tweeted that his new series, Seal has been picked up by CBS!

    I will certainly give it a try! 👍🏻

  17. ” I will be watching 💯💯”

    Me also!! Something to look forward to- I think it will be Boothy! 🙂

  18. I saw a comment somewhere on social media (can’t remember who or where) about how DB brought a lot of himself to Booth. Booth was from Philly, was Catholic, loved hockey, etc… They questioned whether DB would do the same for this new character and whether the character would end up being “Boothy”.

    My guess is DB will bring different aspects of his own life to this new character…it will be interesting (and a little difficult) to see him in a new role.

    • If that Cocky belt buckle shows up on this character, I don’t know if I will be happy or upset! lol We will have to be vigilant (tough job!) and look for any comparisons between this Seal and Booth. I’m guessing there will be a lot of overlapping!

  19. From EW.com:

    — SEAL Team from writer Ben Cavell (Justified). The pitch: “Follows the professional and personal lives of the most elite unit of Navy SEALs as they train, plan and execute the most dangerous, high-stakes missions our country can ask of them.” In addition to Boreanaz, the cast also includes Max Thieriot, Neil Brown Jr., A.J. Buckley, Toni Trucks and Jessica Paré.

    http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/more-tv-news/cbs-adds-swat-seal-team-with-david-boreanaz-4-more-shows-for-2017-18/

    Seems like the news articles covering the shows picked up are all running with DB as the headline, so he’s like the biggest name with a new show right now. I’m happy for him, but still sad at the same time, because he won’t be Booth!

  20. Yeah, those are all pretty “Boothy”. I’m really happy DB will still be on our TV screens this fall, but a wave of sadness washed over me when I saw all the Seal team news and pictures this morning. No Emily…:(

    Also, DB looks insanely good. How does he do it? Here is a pic of three handsome Boreanaz men:

    The three amigos off to the upfronts! 🇺🇸 #cbs

  21. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DADHlAlWAAAlt0-.jpg:large

    Here is DB with the cast of the show. This woman is Toni Trucks. Most speculation has been that if DB has a love interest on the show (and no one really knows if he will) it would be Jessica Pare, but she doesn’t seem to be at Upfronts, or at least she isn’t being photographed with the rest of the cast. I wonder if she still going to be on the show?

  22. Maybe Jessica Pare will drop out and they’ll have to scour the globe for another actress to play opposite DB, someone like, oh I don’t know…Emily Deschanel?

  23. Well, Jessica Pare is definitely on the show…sigh.

    Trailer looks good. Booth…oops, Jason is married with a teenage daughter. Marriage looks strained…not sure if they are divorced or not. Looks like we will get plenty of tortured, angsty DB!

  24. David looks great in this. Plus stretching his acting CBD upfront s chips all good!! I was wondering if they were divorced too and/or it was a flashback to why it went wrong? And she is kinda eye rolling bitchy, going by that clip anyway, haaa.

    I wouldn’t mind his character now single. Dating. Being a good dad.

    😉

  25. “That middle pic is so Boothy I can’t handle it!”
    Seriously loving it!!

    “Also, DB looks insanely good. How does he do it? Here is a pic of three handsome Boreanaz men”

    So handsome!! Good looks runs in the family! Jaden at 15 looks like Dad and grandpa!!

  26. “In SEAL Team, he’ll butt heads with Jessica Paré, fret about an operation that went wrong, and work alongside a K9 officer affectionately referred to as “the hair missile.” This will run for 13 seasons, at which point Boreanaz will still have a full head of hair and a new series offer waiting for him.”

    http://www.avclub.com/article/multiple-moynihans-and-endless-reign-david-boreana-255529

    I read this article and then this distressing thought occurred to me. If this show runs for 13 seasons (and absolutely NO guarantee that it will survive even one season) David would be 61 YEARS OLD when it ends!!! That’s hard to believe.

    I’ve seen some discussion on various TV sites about whether DB is too old to play a Navy SEAL. I did some research and it does appear that the majority of SEALS are in their 20s or 30s, but there have been a few older SEALS who remain on active duty. It will be interesting to see if they refer to his character’s age in this show.

  27. “This will run for 13 seasons, at which point Boreanaz will still have a full head of hair and a new series offer waiting for him”
    ^^^^^That made me laugh out loud…seriously! hahahaha

    I mean, DB does have a pretty fabulous track record for show longevity. Most actors would kill to have one hit show, and he’s had three! I will definitely give this one a shot as well, though I still haven’t gotten around to trying Buffy/Angel yet.

    I know how we can make this work! This whole series is actually a new book series from Temperance Brennan about a soldier inspired by experiences told to her from her husband Seeley Booth. Instead of Agent Andy, its Soldier Jason. lol So its kinda like the coma dream, but the whole series is Brennan’s imagining the stories as she types them!!

  28. I agree bnb, this is a great idea! It’s all in Brennan’s head. But, now that they are married, Brennan finally agrees to let him read the book as she is writing it, and he helps her with the operational stuff. He also “helps” her with the romantic stuff…lol!

  29. Random musings on DB’s new show:

    – Whereas I spent 12 seasons of Bones wanting to see love scenes between Booth and Brennan, now I want DB to have NO love scenes at all…lol

    – DB’s character Jason is married, and having watched the preview several times now I realize that one of the other characters says something about them “making it” as a couple, so it sounds like they are not divorced but are on rocky ground. The show description says it will deal with the impact their jobs have on their personal lives, so this makes sense.

    – Noticed that the Jessica Pare character was giving “Jason” the “you are a good man” speech in that preview, and maybe they get close?

    – It looks like DB will have to be filming all summer…I wonder if that will be in L.A. or on location somewhere?

    – Will DB have top billing or equal billing with Jessica Pare?

    – DB posted an Instagram pic a few last week of him having lunch with Ian Toynton…I wonder if DB was trying to get Ian to direct an episode of SEALS? How many folks could he drag over from Bones? Does DB have that kind of pull on this show?

    [sorry if this double posts…I’m getting conflicting messages about whether it posted already or not]

  30. –” Will DB have top billing or equal billing with Jessica Pare?”

    – “DB posted an Instagram pic a few last week of him having lunch with Ian Toynton…I wonder if DB was trying to get Ian to direct an episode of SEALS? How many folks could he drag over from Bones? Does DB have that kind of pull on this show?”

    ^^

    Well, I would think DB would get top billing. I think I remember that Jessica was on that Mad Men show (that I didn’t watch) so I feel DB has the longer resume and is more well-known. As far as his pull, he got Jim Caveziel bumped off this show (somehow lol) and has three successful shows under his belt. And has director cred himself. So I’m guessing he’d be allowed to suggest people to work with. As I thought about this yesterday, I found myself hoping we’d see TJ or Michaela pop in recurring roles!! That would be so fun!

    • “As far as his pull, he got Jim Caveziel bumped off this show (somehow lol)”

      Hmm…did DB get Jim Caviezel bumped off of SEALS? I’m not sure who the bigger star is — Caviezel has a lot of fans.

      Jim Caviezel’s casting was announced on March 14, then on March 22 it was announced that David was replacing him. So, whatever happened, happened during that week. The official reason was that Caviezel had “creative differences” with the show, but maybe CBS was trying to get DB and when they succeeded they dumped Caviezel?

      There is a long list of folks DB could pull over from Bones…TJ, Michaela, and Patricia Belcher are at the top of the list for me, unless he could actually get ED to make an appearance!

  31. “Brennan finally agrees to let him read the book as she is writing it, and he helps her with the operational stuff. He also “helps” her with the romantic stuff…lol!”

    Page 187!! lol Angela supposedly wrote that page, but now B&B can write their own!

    ” Noticed that the Jessica Pare character was giving “Jason” the “you are a good man” speech”

    More Bones spill over. How many times did Brennan tell Booth he was “a good man” .

    “I spent 12 seasons of Bones wanting to see love scenes between Booth and Brennan, now I want DB to have NO love scenes at all…lol”

    Yes because it will seem as though he is cheating on Brennan, lol!

    • “Noticed that the Jessica Pare character was giving “Jason” the “you are a good man” speech”

      More Bones spill over. How many times did Brennan tell Booth he was “a good man” .”

      ^^

      Buffy/Angel fans, did DB get that “good man” speech in those shows as well? From what little I know of the Angel character, it seems like that’s a good possibility!

  32. Good manpire you mean? 😉😉 lol! Then kinda yes. Reinforcement he wasn’t Angelus. That he fought the good fight. That he made amends. It was key to Angel: to make atone for his past sins.

    Angel is a pretty good show, I liked it better than Buffy tbh. There is humor in it too, esp with (early) Cordy character trying to make Angel loosen up & him trying too, awkwardly! It definitely has dark serious themes but there is always humor.

    This is my third DB show with SEAL, I can adapt. I 💯 rather have DB onscreen than no DB . I’ll always have my Angel & Bones DVDs *hugs them tightly* 💟

  33. “DB’s character Jason is married, and having watched the preview several times now I realize that one of the other characters says something about them “making it” as a couple, so it sounds like they are not divorced but are on rocky ground.

    The wife already annoyed me. Is that wrong? She married a SEAL. What did she expect? He aint going to be home for dinner at 6! C’mon. Lol.

    I think one of the male characters is a BFF to Jason too. Somebody he trusts 100% . Which will be an interesting dynamic (one I always wanted for our man Booth)

  34. “The wife already annoyed me. Is that wrong? She married a SEAL. What did she expect? He aint going to be home for dinner at 6! C’mon. Lol.”

    Yes, she annoyed me as well. I agree about marrying a SEAL, but maybe that’s part of their problem…maybe she wants him to quit and get a regular job and he won’t? It will be interesting to see. She isn’t being listed as a main cast member, so maybe we’ll only see her from time to time.

    I do hope Jason has a guy friend. Booth should have had one as well…sad that we never got to see it. In my head canon Booth and Aldo (he’s still alive) are buddies…lol.

    It definitely looks like we will get a whole bunch of angsty DB in this show!

  35. Saw the clip – I can’t believe someone cast Jessica Pare as some sort of operative. GAG! At least she isn’t his ex. (although as I remember on Mad Men – she has no objection to sex scenes (lol) so I can see them playing up a triangle with her, DB’s character and his ex) I’m guessing he’s divorced since other guy looked married and expecting and young guy is likely single (possible romance with the female operative)? I’ve been on vacation and was out of touch. I was hoping that Jessica Pare had been dropped since I didn’t see any pics of her from upfronts? No such luck it seems!!

  36. This is for you NW, since you like Jessica Pare so much…lol!

    I don’t know anything about Toni Trucks, but my eyebrows raised just a bit at her referring to DB as “the meat” and she and Jessica Pare as “the sweet bread.” DB’s wife Jaime “liked” it though so I guess she didn’t mind.

  37. I just don’t have a great feeling about all of this! But thanks for the picture Estella!! LOL
    I have a really good idea why JC walked away from this show! I can only guess how Jessica Pare got her job as she is a subpar actress. I know no one on this show outside of DB and the awful actress who’s name I didn’t even know (and will quickly forget) until this debacle!! LOL
    I will read reviews……and you guys can watch! :))

  38. Max was a regular on the acclaimed Bates Motel. He is a really good actor. Such a great show.

    And AJ was a regular on CSI:Miami .

    Neil has guested on a ton of TV shows & movies.

    I don’t have a problem with Toni or Jessica tbh. (They aren’t even playing DB/Jason’s wife. Who actually did annoy me in the trailer. Lol)

  39. Yeah, I don’t know anyone from the cast other than DB, but everyone seems very excited about them being on this show.

    The show is certainly getting a lot of buzz in the press. I watched a video of CBS execs talking about the international screening for their shows, and they said they were interested in SEALTeam because it’s about not just about the U.S. military, it’s really a show about the families and the personal lives of the SEALS. We all know that DB does “angsty” drama very well, but I think he needs some light-heartedness and perhaps romance to balance that out (at least that’s what we got on Bones). He won’t have Emily with him this time so not sure about the romance part :((((

  40. “but I think he needs some light-heartedness and perhaps romance to balance that out (at least that’s what we got on Bones).”

    I am being shallow, but I hope DB takes his shirt off or at least wears a tank tshirt. 😘😘

    • Has there been any news on when they will be filming? I guess since DB’s sick they haven’t started yet, but I would think he’ll be busy most of the summer working on the show.

  41. I think they start a tad earlier on new shows, so they can find their feet & make changes with some time to spare, so I am guessing late June or very early July? Just a guess tho

  42. TVLine reviews SEAL Team:
    http://tvline.com/2017/06/07/seal-team-preview-pilot-cbs-fall-lineup/

    The reviewer, Matt Mitovitch, seems pretty lukewarm on the show. I’m pretty lukewarm on TVLine so I guess we’re even.

    Interesting tidbits:

    – Actress Michaela McManus is referred to as DB’s character’s ex, so I guess they are divorced

    – David is getting older, but his co-stars are getting younger, as is always the case in Hollywood. David is 48. His rl wife Jaime is 41. Former costars Sarah Michelle Gellar and Emily are both 40 years old. Michaela McManus is 34!!!! I guess if DB gets a new role when he’s 58 they’ll give him a 24 year old wife…lol.

  43. In the comments someone said they saw it and really enjoyed as it was their type of show…. I think that is going to be the main factor if people like CBS type shows & if military shows are their thing. If not then are a million other shows for them. I guess cable/Netflix etc.. is the “cool” show media darling place. 😉

    An issue I use to have with tvline was their Castle vs Bones vibe. Those articles comments were like a war zone in the early days. 😞😒 Didn’t help that Matt was a die hard Castle stan either.

    I didn’t recognize Reiko M. Aylesworth from the promo, Jason’s therapist. She was really good on 24….So I can see me enjoying that aspect.

    LOL on wife. Hey if Jason is divorced its OK by me 😉 I already feel he deserves better ( she really annoyed me in the promo) !!!!!!

    • *EDIT

      Let’s not even go there on how tvline promoted Dully before and after his episode. 😬😡😈 How they deliberately used provocative headlines with pics, really, were they that desperate for site hits? They really put a damper on S12 for me & that’s before I even watched those lack luster episodes… Them & Peterson pretty much tarnished Brennan’s named throughout S12 with that crap promotion, look how many articles asked would she cheat. …. Ugh….still makes mad 😈

  44. I don’t think Matt ever really liked Bones, he seemed to like to ‘bait’ the Bones fans with Castle stuff so he’s likely not a big DB fan.
    This is a CBS show, so it will actually get advertisement time so that is a good thing! DB fans will of course tune in. I think it has a good chance, as long as they find some better female cast members! LOL So much of it depends on what’s happening behind the scenes that we never see. Some shows get a BIG chance/opportunity and others get the ax quick. Remember ED’s husband had a show on CBS that lasted one episode! LOL But of course that followed Big Bang and CBS expected a lot more in that slot I suppose. I have no clue what the issue was there! Like the drama behind the original star of this pilot walking away. Fun to know what the real drama is behind the scenes it all about there has to be something going on……I thought DB made a comment in Australia that he really wasn’t expecting it to be picked up? So who knows why CBS decided to stick with it regardless of pilot drama!
