Band of Brothers, HBO’s World War II miniseries, was a hit with critic and audiences alike. It followed E Company from basic training, to D Day, and finally to the end of the war.
The creative team behind Band of Brothers, Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg and Gary Goetzman, have once again teamed up to tell a story from the other side of WWII’s theater of war: The Pacific.
The Pacific tracks the real-life journeys of three U.S. Marines as they fight for their country, and themselves, in the Pacific theater during World War II. The miniseries premieres on HBO March 14,2010 but if you’re a Comcast Digital Cable customer you have access to some first look features about The Pacific starting today.
The features available On Demand include:
- From Band of Brothers to The Pacific: Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg talk about their experiences making Band of Brothers and how it lead to the Pacific in this Comcast exclusive feature.
- A sneak peek at the Pacific: You can check out a scene from the Pacific with an intro by the creators.
- The Making of The Pacific: Get behind the scenes details about the miniseries in this unique cut made for Comcast.
- We Stand Alone: The Men of Easy Company: This documentary features interviewers with actual soldiers from E Company, which was the basis for Band of Brothers.
And that’s just scratching the surface.
Now, I know a lot of you will want to watch Band of Brothers again before The Pacific premieres. That’s why each week an episode of Band of Brothers will be available for viewing On Demand, leading up to the Pacific’s premiere.
