There is no release date announced yet. The show will commence shooting in the month of August. 

Plot

According to reports, 'Outside The Wire' is set in the future, and follows a drone pilot (played by Mackie) who gets sent into a deadly militarized zone. He soon finds himself working for an android officer who is searching for a doomsday device before it falls into the hands of insurgents.
