Jason Cermak was cast in the pilot episode of Netflix’s upcoming comedy “The Green Berets Guide to Surviving the Apocalypse” as the motivational speaking spin instructor Chet Black. The pilot episode explains the do’s and don’ts of surviving a dirty bomb nuclear terrorist attack in a hilarious way. An interesting premise that evolved from a documentary style show, to a documentary, to a fully scripted comedy show.
The survival guide comedy series is from military vet duo Shawn Vance, a former United States Special forces Green Beret, and Daril Fanin, a former combat army medic. The series is produced by Matt Damon & Peter Berg. Matt Damon had a heavy influence on Cermak’s starting his acting career back in 2000 on the Bourne Identity while filming in Prague.
