Masters of the Air has started filming with James Bond Director

With Hanks and Spielberg producing once again

Back in 2001, TV was considered small time. A place with small stories where actors would go once their career on the big screen was over. Band of Brothers came along and helped changed that, ushering in a golden age of television and showed that TV was not only as good as film but could dive into characters and story like only a longer running time can.

Now, 20 years later, a new series has begun filming by Band of Brothers and The Pacific producers Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg called “Masters of the Air”. It will be a limited series following an Eighth Air Force bomber crew during the second world war.

The series has already started filming, and directing a few of the episodes will be Cary Joji Fukunaga, who is fresh from his work on the newest James Bond film, No Time To Die. He is also no stranger to directing fantastic TV shows with Maniac and the first season of True Detectives under his belt.

While Masters of the Air was originally in the hands of HBO, just like the previous limited series, troubles in pre-production caused the project to be scooped up by Apple so it’s likely to premier exclusively on their streaming platform.
