Twenty years ago today, Band of Brothers premiered at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on August 29, 2001. Here is Damian Lewis, Donnie Wahlberg and Neal McDonough arriving at the event.
Band of Brothers continues to be remembered as a remarkably accurate portrayal of a US parachute infantry company in the European Theater during the Second World War. Damian played U.S. Army Major Richard Winters in the HBO miniseries. Currahee!

Band of Brothers
by Noel Murray and Scott Tobias | Vulture | November 25, 2020
Some of the network’s best, most daring work has come in the form of a limited series.
As HBO miniseries started developing in the mid-’80s and early ’90s, the “It’s Not TV. It’s HBO” tagline would not have applied. With a notable exception of Robert Altman and Garry Trudeau’s Tanner ’88, early efforts like The Far Pavilions and All the Rivers Run — the latter unavailable for us to include — had the scope of a typical two-night network event, with little of the ambition and artistry (and premium-cable pruriency) that would come to define the network. Even some of the more lauded, award-winning benchmarks from the mid-2000s, like the star-packed Richard Russo adaptation Empire Falls or the lavishly appointed historical drama Elizabeth I, hadn’t evolved past a more traditional model.
