Masters of the Air is coming to Apple TV+. The streaming service is now ready to make its own content like Netflix and Hulu. This first project will be an eight-hour limited event series, and it will cost $200 million to produce.
Masters of the Air is the last part of the trilogy, which consists of Band of Brothers and The Pacific. Those first two parts aired on HBO, but the cable network decided to leave the historical drama genre. Apple TV+ decided to give the project a home, per Deadline.
Masters of the Air is based on the book by Donald L. Miller, and the series will bring the story of how the pilots of WWII had an impact to the small screen. The series comes from Amblin Television and Playtone with Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, and Gary Goetzman acting as executive producers.
Masters of the Air will be exclusive to Apple TV+. There is no word of a cast or premiere date at this time.
What do you think? Will you watch Masters of the Air?
waiting for this for years– My father in law was in the Eighth– shot down over Deutschland….
Given the great job Spielberg / Hanks have done on Band of Brothers and The Pacific, I’m VERY EXCITED to see them put out a mini-series featuring the air war over Europe in WWII. Can’t wait.
Where is this series going to be seen? Apple TV and HBO? How do you get Apple TV? I have an apple phone, iPhone X, what do I need to do to get the series? Thank you!
It will take a lot more than a single miniseries to put Apple in the same league as Netlfix and Hulu.
