Variety reports that Apple is set to produce its first in-house series, Masters of the Air. Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, and Gary Goetzman, all of whom worked on the acclaimed HBO series Band of Brothers and The Pacific, will be executive producers.
Masters of the Air will be based on the book of the same name by Donald L. Miller, which follows the story of the bomber crews of the American Eighth Air Force and their missions deep into the heart of Germany during World War Two.
John Orloff, another Band of Brothers alum, is set to write the series and co-executive produce.
Masters of the Air will stream exclusively in Apple TV Plus.
I recently re-watched Band of Brothers and it still holds up as possibly my favorite season of television to date. The Pacific was great as well, so I’m really looking forward to this. What about you? Sound off in the comments!
