Cary Joji Fukunaga, who recently directed the forthcoming (and oft-delayed) James Bond film No Time to Die, is heading into the skies for his next directorial effort.
Fukunaga will direct the first three episodes of Masters of the Air, a World War II limited series from Steven Spielberg‘s Amblin Television and Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman‘s Playtone production company. The show serves as a follow-up to their Emmy Award-winning shows Band of Brothers and The Pacific, but instead of their previous premium cable home at HBO, this series will air on a streamer – specifically, on AppleTV+.

Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks previously brought the stirring World War II drama of Band of Brothers and The Pacific to HBO. But with Spielberg tooting the horn for Apple TV+, it should come as no surprise that his latest war drama collaboration with Hanks is heading to the forthcoming streaming service instead of sticking with cable.
Masters of the Air is a new event limited series heading to Apple+ from Speilberg’s own Amblin Television and Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman‘s Playtone production banner. The series is based on Donald L. Miller’s book, which carries the full title of Masters of the Air: America’s Bomber Boys Who Fought The Air War Against Nazi Germany. Find out more below. Read More »

Miller‘s book Masters of the Air: America’s Bomber Boys Who Fought the Air War Against Nazi Germany. Read more after the jump.
