As a major fan of war films, I was a huge fan of the 2001 smash hit miniseries Band of Brothers. The show perfectly portrayed the personal struggles that soldiers went through while fighting in World War II.
So, needless to say I was stoked to see that the next project from the Band of Brothers crew, dubbed Masters of the Air, is currently in the works.
According to Variety,the miniseries will document members of the Air Force fighting against the Nazis during World War II.
On top of that, the show has a star studded cast, including the likes of Elvis star Austin Butler, Barry Keoghan.
The show is executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, and Gary Goetzman, and the show is based off Donald L. Miller’s 2007 nonfiction book Masters of the Air: America’s Bomber Boys Who Fought the War Against Nazi Germany.
Goetzman discussed the upcoming series:
“‘Masters of the Air’ is a salute to the brave men of the 8th Air Force, who, through their courage and brotherhood, helped defeat Nazi Germany in World War II.
Tom and Steven have always wanted to visualize cinematically what our author Don Miller has called, this ‘singular event in the history of warfare.’”
The show is slated to drop its first two episodes on January 26th, 2024 on AppleTV+, and will have a new episode dropping each Friday until the season finale on March 15th.
And on top of that, we have a kicka** trailer that dropped today.
