Ft. Bliss: Boot camp to the stars of "Enlisted"

Ft. Bliss was given a treat Wednesday, Aug 9th as the cast of FOX's new Fall show Enlisted stopped by to sign autographs at Freedom Crossings Food Court on Ft. Bliss. Geoff Stults, Keith David, Angelique Cabral, Chris Lowell, and Parker Young all made an appearance to meet and greet with soldiers and their families. This impromptu visit to the Sun City comes after the creators of the show decided that the cast needed real life training for their roles - or as they would put it A week of butt kicking! Ft. Bliss was the official training ground for these actors as they take up rolls in their new workplace comedy playing soldiers. It was important to the creators of Enlisted that the actors get a taste of what true enlisted men and women do on a daily basis, in the hopes of adding Army values to the comedy.
The show Enlisted is centered around three brothers serving on a Rear Detachment (Rear D) Unit on a fictional post called Ft. McGee. The three brothers are awkwardly reunited after Sergeant Pete Hill played by Geoff Stults is booted back stateside. He is put in charge of the Platoon with his brothers Derrick Hill (Chris Lowell) and Randy Hill (Parker Young). Sergeant Peter Hill soon finds out that his troops, and brothers, are not up to his usual standard. To make things worse for Peter, or more entertaining for us, he comes face to face with a rival Rear D Platoon leader Jill Perez (Angelique Cabral). She is hell bent on furthering her career at any means necessary. Throw in a Post Commander Donald Cody (Emmy Award Winner Keith David) with a promise to keep the brothers together and you got a mix of comedy only the Army can hold.

During the interviews, each cast member emphasized their profound respect for the military and wanted to convey that their show would provide no less. It will be comedic without ever mocking the Army tradition.
While sitting down with the cast of Enlisted it was clear boot camp fatigue had set in. They had little to no sleep prior to the interview and were told to memorize several things- one of which was the Army Song. And like any good reporter would do, we could not let them leave until we tested to see if their song memorization stuck.
