    This fall we reported the early whispers that Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg would be back to produce a third World War II miniseries for HBO, new details of which have emerged. The two collaborated on the highly successful (and highly decorated) series Band of Brothers which first aired in 2001, and followed it up with The Pacific in 2010.

    The new series, called Masters of the Air, would explore the aerial wars of the men known as the “Mighty Eighth,” using Donald L. Miller’s historical book Masters of the Air: America’s Bomber Boys Who Fought the Air War Against Nazi Germany as source material. Hit the jump for more on the project.

    Will be good to see some air battles for a change, though what happens on the ground will hopefully be as interesting, including the airmen's stories/background, etc. I was a bit disappointed with The Pacific as I didn't really connect with the characters, though I thought it was good in how it depicted the personal cost paid by the soldiers.

    Early days for this upcoming project - hope it gets off the ground. It'll probably air...2016?
