'Enlisted' premiere: Cast owns up to military mistakes, wants you to spot them

The premiere of FOX's new comedy, "Enlisted," contains plenty of mistakes. Any current or former service member could tell you at least 10 things the military comedy got wrong in its first episode. But after sending the cast to boot camp and hiring a military adviser, the show hopes to do justice to the men and women serving our country. Zap2it spent a day on set with Geoff Stults, Parker Young and Chris Lowell, who play three brothers who serve together in an Army rear detachment unit (the group that stays home to take care of the base and the families of deployed soldiers), and co-star Angelique Cabral, who plays Stults' rival sergeant, and they say their time at boot camp really helped them appreciate both each other and the reality of being in the military. "We spent a very intensive week together. They really sent us to Fort Bliss, and we really did boot... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/01/enlisted-premiere-cast-owns-up-to-military-mistakes-wants-you-to-spot-them.html

'Enlisted' series premiere: Geoff Stults 'cut his teeth' on 'Scrubs'

Geoff Stults is sitting at the bar in the memorabilia-stuffed set for the Claymore (named after either a Scottish two-handled long sword or an anti-personnel mine), a watering hole serving the soldiers of Florida Army base Fort McGee in the Fox comedy "Enlisted," premiering Friday, Jan. 10.He plays Staff Sgt. Pete Hill, a soldier who was on the fast track until a mistake overseas got him sent stateside to Fort McGee, where his younger brothers, Derrick (Chris Lowell) and Randy (Parker Young), are also stationed.The Hill brothers serve in the Rear Detachment (Rear D) unit, composed of soldiers left behind when others deployed. They mow lawns, sort mail, maintain equipment and find lost dogs. But their main job is to look after the families of deployed troops, which can be emotionally taxing.So Rear D sometimes cuts the tension with some hijinks.

‘Enlisted’ Showrunner on Criticism of Military Portrayal: ‘It’s Horsesh-t’

New Fox series “Enlisted” is facing some of the same questions about the appropriateness of its humor as another new Fox comedy, “Dads.” “Enlisted” is a silly portrayal of three brothers in the military posted at a Florida-based Army Rear Detachment unit. Their platoon is filled with ne’er-do-wells and soldiers unfit for combat, whose stateside days are filled with menial tasks as their more competent peers are deployed for war.   Read More... http://www.thewrap.com/enlisted-fox-kevin-biegel-geoff-stults-cougar-town-scrubs

Enlisted Offers a New Spin on the Workplace Comedy: "Our Dunder Mifflin Is the U.S. Military"

Boy enrolls in the army. Boy goes overseas to fight the bad guys in Afghanistan. Boy returns home safely to his two younger brothers. Sounds like a happy ending, right? Not quite. On the new military comedy Enlisted , premiering Friday at 9:30/8:30c on Fox, Geoff Stults plays Staff Sergeant Pete Hill, an ambitious super soldier who is sent back home to Fort McGee, Fla., and reassigned to the far less impressive Rear Detachment unit after his temper gets the best of him in the war zone.  Read More... http://www.tvguide.com/News/Enlisted-Preview-Fox-1075504.aspx?rss=breakingnews

'Enlisted': Geoff Stults and Chris Lowell almost murdered costar Parker Young

It wasn't very hard for the stars of FOX's new comedy "Enlisted" to inhabit their roles. Geoff Stults, Chris Lowell and Parker Young play three brothers working on an Army base in Florida, and they became so close during filming that their brotherly spats almost turned deadly. "I think we get along exactly the way that brothers get along, which is to say we love each other so deeply and we are so supportive and so there for each other, and simultaneously we fight like siblings," Lowell tells Zap2it during a visit to the show's Los Angeles set. Young, who plays the youngest sibling (but is actually the eldest in real life) confirms it: "They're like my brothers," he says. "These guys treat me like I'm their little brother for sure, but I love it." Stults' Sgt. Pete Hill is a super soldier who's sent to his brothers' rear detachment unit as punishment after an... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/01/enlisted-geoff-stults-and-chris-lowell-almost-murdered-costar-parker-young.html
