Amblin TV will adapt Masters of Air for Apple and we can’t wait.
Deadline is reporting that Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television and Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman’s Playtone have made a deal with Apple for a limited event limited series based on the Donald L. Miller book Masters of the Air: America’s Bomber Boys Who Fought the Air War Against Nazi Germany.
As a Spielberg and Hanks lover — plus a history buff — I cannot wait for their follow-up to Band of Brothers.
Masters of the Air chronicles the history of the American Eighth Air Force in World War II. The source material tells the true story of the American bomber boys during the war that “brought the war to Hitler’s doorstep,” according to a description on Amazon.
