Hunting ISIS follows a group of veteran and civilian volunteers who smuggle themselves into Syria and Iraq to fight against ISIS alongside local militias. Through the eyes of American fighters embedded with the Kurdish YPG militia in Syria, and medics supporting a coalition of local forces in Iraq, Hunting ISIS follows these men as they begin the difficult push to retake ISIS’ capital cities. New episodes air Tuesdays at 10PM Eastern on the History Channel.
What is most interesting about Hunting ISIS is these brave men are not doing it for pay, they’re doing it because they believe in the cause. Each and every day, they wake up to face the possibility of death or imprisonment, and they continue forward. Not only does the series showcase the mission of these men, it also directs audiences to additional information about the conflict, and what it means for the world at large.
For this exclusive interview, host Aaron Peterson sits down with director, Sebastiano Tomada and Deirio Films producer Christopher Leggett to discuss developing and filming Hunting ISIS, where the threat of war loomed over every frame.
