Apple TV+ has premiered the first trailer for its long-in-the-works and big-budget WW2 mini-series “Masters of the Air” which is set to premiere with two episodes on January 26th and roll out weekly through March 15th.

A companion to HBO’s “Band of Brothers” and “The Pacific,” the project hails from executive producers Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman who are producing for Apple Studios, Amblin Entertainment, and Playtone.

Austin Butler, Callum Turner, Barry Keoghan, Anthony Boyle, Nate Mann, Rafferty Law, Josiah Cross, Branden Cook, and Ncuti Gatwa lead the cast of the series based primarily on Donald L. Miller’s nonfiction novel.

The story follows the men of the 100th Bomb Group (the ‘Bloody Hundredth’) as they conduct perilous bombing raids over Nazi Germany and grapple with the frigid conditions, lack of oxygen, and sheer terror of combat conducted at 25,000 feet in the air.

The series explores the psychological and emotional price paid by these young men as they helped destroy the horror of Hitler’s Third Reich – some were shot down, some captured, some killed – even those who made it home paid a heavy price.

John Orloff pens the script whilst Cary Fukunaga, Anna Boden, Ryan Fleck, Dee Rees and Timothy van Patten direct episodes. Graham Yost executive produces.
