Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg are currently developing a new World War II mini-series for HBO, it has emerged.
The two Hollywood heavyweights are planning on making Masters of the Air, a series based on the exploits of American air crews over mainland Europe.
The HBO produced show will be based on Donald L. Miller’s historical book Masters of the Air: America’s Bomber Boys Who Fought the Air War Against Nazi Germany.
According to THR, Justified creator Graham Yost will be on board to write episodes for Masters of the Air as he did with several episodes of Band of Brothers and the Pacific, both also set during the 1939-1945. Hanks and Spielberg produced both shows for HBO in 2001 and 2010 respectively.
