Hour long show which looks at the life of American super-secret operators.
In the Image Comics comic book series titled "The Activity" by Nathan Edmondson and Mitch Gerads, The Unit character of Mack Gerhardt is alluded to / paid homage to in issue #12 titled "Higher Ground." In the issue a special operations team, alluded to later in the issue as Delta Force, are making their way toward their mission in Fallujah. One of the team members is referred to by name as "Gerhardt." Later in the issue the team's individual call signs are named, and one of the call signs is "Dirt Diver." "Dirt Diver" is used numerous times as the designated call sign of Master Sergeant Mack Gerhardt in The Unit.
It's clear (probably due to series low budget) that many of the scenes, including those supposedly filmed on the base located in an unnamed Midwestern state, are actually shot in Southern California.
This is especially noticeable during scenes which reflect changes in seasons and which show hills covered in the dried brown grasslands common in Central and Southern California.
