USA Network has released a series of retro-style animated posters for Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe, which premieres this Sunday, April 17th, at 9 PM Eastern (8PM Central Time).

Jeffrey Donovan, who plays everyone’s favorite burned spy Michael Weston on Burn Notice, directs the Matt Nix-penned television movie, which follows Sam Axe (Bruce Campbell) on a mission in Latin America and gives us a glimpse into his military past.

The Fall of Sam Axe also stars Kiele Sanchez, Chandra West, John Diehl, RonReaco Lee, Alex Fernandez, Pedro Pascal, Jessica Guadix, Jason Chad Roth, Lashawn Butler, Brendan O’Malley, Antonio Padin and Don Festge.

Before Sam Axe teamed up with Michael (Donovan) and Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar), he was Commander Axe, U.S. Navy SEAL. The Fall of Sam Axe tells the story of how Sam went from respected Naval Commander to the man of mystery we’ve come to know on Burn Notice. On what will turn out to be Sam’s last military mission, he is sent to the jungles of Colombia to investigate claims of a vicious terrorist organization known only as the “Espada Ardiente” (Flaming Sword). His mission: to determine whether U.S. military aid is necessary to deal with the threat. But when he arrives, things are more complicated than he’d imagined. He receives word that the rebels have targeted a small civilian clinic deep in the jungle. Sam must now save the clinic’s doctors and patients from certain death. However, nothing is as it seems and the Espada Ardiente may not be the biggest threat Sam Axe faces.

Handsome with a good-natured grin, Sam Axe is a former Navy Seal, Military Intel Operative, and all-around Cold Warrior. In his prime he was point man on an array of armed conflicts the world over. He worked with Michael Westin many times during those heady days. When Michael reconnects with him in Miami, Sam has embraced his post-espionage days by letting loose. Once, he loved the threadbare world of secret surveillance in the communist bloc, or forward recon in the touch-and-go Middle East.

Now, he has moved on to mojitos, Sugar Mommas and bikini watching in the bars and on the sands of South Beach. He’s reliable and consistent, in the way that you can count on a former spy to dig up solid intel and execute missions with stealthy aplomb. Despite his predilection for rich divorcees and cocktails, he is an asset to Michael, even when he becomes an informant for the FBI. Though the Feds have Sam keeping an eye on Michael, he needs Sam’s friendship, partnership, and expertise, now more than ever.
