Caribe Road (pronounced ka-ree-bay, Spanish for “Caribbean”) is an ambitious new web television series that follows the fictional story of U.S. Special Forces commander Mark Caribe (Hector Bustamante), who is hell bent in starting a new life away from the military after a previous black ops mission goes terribly wrong. But first, under the direction of the President of the United States, Caribe must accept the command of a new elite combat unit called SFT1 in hopes of capturing a terrorist named Carlos Saldana.
The show’s website states that “Caribe Road” was born out of a deep rooted desire to say thank you and show appreciation to all the men and women and their families who sacrifice so much to protect our freedom.
