October 26, 2023

Fox Nation, Fox News Media’s streaming service, will debut Top Combat Pilot, a new four-part series hosted by acclaimed Hollywood actor Dennis Quaid on November 6th, announced Jason Klarman, president of the platform.

Based in Yuma, Arizona, the series will feature an inside look at the Weapons and Tactics Instructor (WTI) course, the most elite aviation programme in America and the US Marines’ version of the Navy’s renowned ‘Top Gun school’. Following 25 of the best combat pilots from every squadron in the country, viewers will watch as they train in an unrivaled air fleet, including F-18 Hornets and Huey and Cobra combat helicopters. The top performers will seek to distinguish themselves as the best of the best and be invited back as a WTI instructor.

In making the announcement, Klarman said: “Dennis Quaid not only played a pilot in the iconic movie The Right Stuff, but he is also a licensed pilot — we couldn’t think of a better person to host this series.” 

Emmy Award winner and two-time Golden Globe nominee Quaid is a global entertainer whose career has spanned movies, television, music and philanthropy. Quaid is also known for his iconic roles in The Rookie, The Day After Tomorrow, Traffic, Vantage Point, Frequency, The Parent Trap, Soul Surfer, The Right Stuff, Breaking Away and Midway. His recent big-screen credits include starring roles in Netflix’s uplifting movie Blue Miracle, Sony’s thriller The Intruder, Universal’s A Dog’s Journey and A Dog’s Purpose and Disney’s animated adventure film Strange World. He also recently completed production portraying the 40th president of the United States in the biopic, Reagan, slated for release in early 2024. 

In 2023, Quaid released Fallen: A Gospel Record for Sinners via Gaither Music Group which debuted at No. 1 on Top Christian/Gospel Albums chart. 

Top Combat Pilot is produced by Whiz Bang LLC for Fox Nation with executive producers Roberto Cardenas, Brian Skope and Chris Rowe.
