The following trailer debuted during last night’s episode of True Blood which, apparently to me only, was miles above the premiere in terms of entertainment value. The Pacific is similiar but unrelated to HBO’s Band Of Brothers, in that this mini-series focuses the United States Marine Corps‘s actions in the Pacific Theater Of Operations. The series will feature well-known battles involving the 1st Marine Division, such as Guadalcanal, Cape Gloucester, Peleliu, and Okinawa, as well as Basilone’s involvement in the Battle of Iwo Jima.
The Pacific is produced by Tom Hanks, Steven Speilberg, and Gary Goetzman. The series was written by Bruce McKenna (Band Of Brothers) and Greg Pelecanos (The Wire).
