Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is returning to television.
In an advance clip made available to Politico, McCain attests to the "amazing story of heroism" that will be showcased. PR Newswire explains that the show is set to focus on the story of McCain's friendship with Ernie Brace, which developed during their time as prisoners of war during the Vietnam conflict. McCain, who was held as a POW for five years, was held captive in an adjacent cell to Brace, who was the longest held prisoner of war at nearly eight years.
McCain recently penned an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal reflecting on Vietnam on the 40th anniversary of his release. He was also praised on the Senate floor and received a standing ovation during President Barack Obama's meeting with Senate Republicans last week.
