About ‘The Line’
Hailing from Academy Award-winning Jigsaw Productions,“The Line” is a six-part narrative non-fiction audio series that provides listeners a unique perspective on previously untold aspects of the story of US Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher, who was charged with committing war crimes before ultimately being acquitted on all but one count: for posing in a photo with a corpse.
Hosted by Dan Taberski, “The Line” takes a deep dive into moral ambiguities of forever wars and their impact on special operators as it examines the complicated realities involved with fighting a decades-long war, stripping back the layers surrounding Gallagher’s alleged crimes.
“The Line,” available globally on Apple Podcasts and via RSS, is executive produced by Brad Hebert, Richard Perello, Stacey Offman, Joey Marra and Alex Gibney, in addition to Taberski. Lizzie Jacobs serves as producer.
The four-part limited documentary series, also titled “The Line,” is currently streaming on Apple TV+.
