Special Ops: Lioness, based on True event inspired by a real-life military operation.

Special Ops: Lioness, Over the past few years, Taylor Sheridan has established his own television empire with Paramount+ . He began with the hugely successful Western family saga Yellowstone and its numerous prequels and spinoffs before giving Sylvester Stallone his first leading role on television in the mob drama Tulsa King.

    Sheridan is departing from the criminal genre for his most recent project and venturing into the realm of global espionage. Special Ops: Lioness centers on U.S. Marine Cruz Manuelos, played by Laysla De Oliveira of Locke & Key, as she joins the C.I.A.’s “Lioness” program, a clandestine operation in which female operatives befriend dangerous terrorists’ wives and daughters in order to get close enough to neutralize these “high-value targets.”

    While Oscar-winning performers Nicole Kidman and Morgan Freeman play supporting parts, Zoe Saldaa plays Joe, Cruz’ handler. (Sheridan’s brilliance as a showrunner is attracting prestige talent; he sold Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford on the Yellowstone prequel 1923, and he is presently suggesting that he is working on a project with “probably four of the biggest movie stars alive in it, and we’ve kept it quiet.”)

    The first episode of Special Ops: Lioness is already available to stream on Paramount+. The season’s teaser teases plenty of exciting action, including, as Freeman’s character puts it, “a kill mission in front of CBS news.” However, despite how fantastical some of the show’s action-packed scenes may seem, the story is based on a  grain of truth.

    Is Special Ops: Lioness an accurate depiction of events?

    The show’s all-female Lioness team was modeled by a real-life U.S. Marines unit, however its mission was different. The mission of finding women who could be involved in terrorist activity fell to mission Force Lioness, also known as the Female Engagement Team, which operated in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Hijabi women were increasingly being used to carry out attacks, and because the Muslim beliefs of the Iraqi and Afghani people made it much more challenging for male Marines to interact with women in these areas, the Lionesses were created in order to conduct closer surveillance on these women, build relationships with women in the community, and conduct checks at checkpoints.

    In spite of Special Ops: Lioness’ appearance as a long-running operation, the Lionesses were only a temporary solution that involved hiring and educating local women to execute crucial privacy searches.
