Every HBO Miniseries Ranked – Nov 25, 2020

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.

Apple Launches In-House Studio, Sets Band of Brothers Follow-Up Series – Oct 11, 2019

Masters of the Air

by Will Thorne | Variety | October 11, 2019

Apple is set to produce its first in-house series.

The show in question is Masters of the Air, a follow-up to the Band of Brothers and The Pacific series executive produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks. The legendary duo are on board once again, which comes as no surprise given that Spielberg was a prominent figure at the Apple TV Plus launch event in March. Masters of the Air will also be a limited drama and represents the first series greenlit with Apple serving as the studio. The tech giant has placed worldwide video heads Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht in charge of overseeing its new studio.

Based on the book by Donald L. Miller, Masters of the Air is said to follow the true, deeply personal story of the American bomber boys in World War II who brought the war to Hitler’s doorstep. The series is being written by Band of Brothers alumnus John Orloff, who is also a co-executive producer. The critically acclaimed Band of Brothers miniseries aired on HBO back in 2001, and featured Homeland and Billions star Damian Lewis in one of the lead roles. The show won a handful of Emmys and a Golden Globe, while its successor The Pacific was also an awards season success.

Spielberg is exec producing via his Amblin Television banner, alongside Hanks and Gary Goetzman for Playtone. Graham Yost, also an alumnus from Band of Brothers, will co-executive produce alongside Amblin TV’s Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey and Steven Shareshian of Playtone.

Masters of the Air will stream exclusively on Apple TV Plus and represents the second project for Apple to hail from Spielberg’s Amblin Television…

Fright Night with Damian – Oct 25, 2018

Halloween Horror Films: Thrills and Chills

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | October 25, 2018

How would you like to spend Fright Night with Damian? If you subscribe to Netflix, then we have the answer and the link to get you there.  Dreamcatcher is the 2003 film adaptation of the Stephen King novel of the same name. Four young friends who perform a heroic act are changed forever by the uncanny powers they gain in return-a telepathic gift. Years later the friends, now men, are on their annual hunting trip in the Maine woods when they are overtaken by a blizzard in which something much more ominous moves, and they must confront an unparalleled horror together. Damian, who plays history professor Gary “Jonesy” Jones in the film, talks about the plot (and his American accent) in this red carpet interview:
