In Terminal List, Adeleke plays Terrell “Tee” Daniels, a member of the FBI’s elite Hostage Rescue Team, now operating on U.S. soil. The best of the best, this creatine-fueled manhunter has turned from active combat tours to domestic counter-terrorism.

“I’m so grateful to Chris Pratt, Antoine Fuqua, my SEAL brother Jack Carr, and the rest of the producing team for giving me the opportunity to bring my real-world operational experience to this amazing show. With so many shows and streamers propagating content, the equalizer needed to rise from the masses is authenticity. And this show will definitely rise above the rest due to the authenticity being brought to the table.” Adeleke said.

Separately, Adeleke will be bringing his directorial debut, the short thriller The Unexpected, at the Cannes Market, where it will be presented by Lon Haber & Co. Pic stars Ariana Kaufman and Justin Garza. Told in reverse and through the lens of its two victims, The Unexpected unearths an elaborate international human trafficking/organ harvesting ring and its link to a terrorist attack.

Remi Adeleke is represented by APA and Loeb & Loeb.
