Know the highest-rated shows on IMDB? Of course, you do. It is Breaking Bad. However, apart from BB, the latest entrant into this list has been Chernobyl that toppled Game of Thrones recently. But enough about these shows, what we are primarily talking about here is Band of Brothers. Ranked number 4 in the list the show was probably a revolution in itself where it came on-air way back in 2001 and before one knew, a limited series garnered immense praise and love across all facets.
So, how does the idea of having a follow-up story to the World War drama sound? It certainly intrigues one and all. That is what will be happening as according to The Hollywood Reporter, the follow-up to Band of Brothers and The Pacific called Masters of Air will be coming on-air soon in the form of nine episodes on Apple. The tech giant will be launching its own studio making the series the first that it will own in-house. Apple's Worldwide Video heads Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht will also oversee the unnamed studio in a move that brings them back to their roots as head of Sony Pictures TV.
Sources say HBO released the series, focused on historian Donald L. Miller's nonfiction book Masters of the Air: America’s Bomber Boys Who Fought the Air War Against Nazi Germany — ages ago and before WarnerMedia became its new corporate parent. Masters focuses the aerial wars through the eyes of enlisted men of the Eighth Air Force — known as the men of the Mighty Eighth — who brought the war to Hitler's doorstep. The drama arrives two decades after HBO won six Emmys for Band of Brothers and its 2010 sequel, The Pacific, which scored 24 nominations and a leading eight wins.
Are you excited about the same? We certainly are.
