Ryan Phillippe's Shooter TV show delayed again amid real-life gun violence


The debut of Ryan Phillippe's new series Shooter is being delayed for the second time in the wake of continuing real-life gun violence, USA Network has said.

Shooter - which stars Ryan as a sniper - was originally set to air in the US on Tuesday but was delayed until July 26.

The network said on Monday that after further consideration, it has rescheduled the premiere for the autumn.

USA Network cited the recent events in Dallas and elsewhere in making its original decision.

The series follows a highly decorated ex-marine sniper who is coaxed back into action after he learns about a plot to kill the president.
