‘Four Stars’ Enlists Former Starfleet Admiral

Bruce Greenwood joins pilot for Florida-based military drama

Unless there’s room for Christopher Pike’s ghost, we won’t see Bruce Greenwood in this summer’s “Star Trek: Beyond.” But we just might see him this fall if CBS decides to pick up the military drama “Four Stars.”

Greenwood is set to play Gen. Buckley, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Buckley is a four-star general who commands international special operations programs from his military installation in Tampa, Florida. Although it’s not clear if the show will be based there, Tampa is home of U.S. Central Command at MacDill Air Force Base, which in the past has handled much of the American involvement in the Middle East.

MacDill might not be a household name, but past CentCom commanders include Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf, Gen. Tommy Franks, and more recently Gen. David Petraeus. In fact, it’s Petraeus’ story at MacDill that may have inspired “Four Stars.” In 2012, Tampa socialite Jill Kelley accused Petraeus’ biographer, Paula Broadwell, of threatening her after Petraeus was named director of the CIA. Although Broadwell as cleared of the charges, the investigation exposed an affair Broadwell had with Petraeus, which ultimately cut short the former general’s tenure at the CIA.
