Masters of the Air to Land Next Year

World War II drama Masters of the Air will stream on Apple TV+ from January 26.

The nine-part series is billed as an action-packed drama that follows the true story of an American bomber group in World War II.

From Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman, the producers of Band of Brothers and The Pacific, it will premiere with two episodes, followed by one new episode every Friday through March 15.

Austin Butler, Callum Turner, Anthony Boyle, Nate Mann, Rafferty Law, Barry Keoghan, Josiah Cross, Branden Cook and Ncuti Gatwa star.

Based on Donald L Miller’s book of the same name, and scripted by John Orloff, Masters of the Air follows 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.

Goetzman describes Masters of the Air as “a salute to the brave men of the 8th Air Force” who helped defeat Nazi Germany.

“Tom and Steven have always wanted to visualise cinematically what our author Don Miller has called, this ‘singular event in the history of warfare.

“We’re thrilled that Apple TV+ has given us the opportunity to combine the efforts of so many talented people, on-screen and behind the camera, to tell this important story.”

And new from November 3, the day after it opens in select cinemas, will be  Fingernails, “a playful meditation on love” starring Jessie Buckley, Riz Ahmed, Jeremy Allen White and Luke Wilson. Reads the blurb:

Anna (Buckley) and Ryan (White) have found true love. It’s been proven by a controversial new technology. There’s just one problem: Anna still isn’t sure. Then she takes a position at a love testing institute, and meets Amir (Ahmed).

Apple TV+ also has released the trailer for period drama The Buccaneers, which streams from November 8. It features Olivia Rodrigo’s hit all-american bitch and Miya Folick’s brand new single What We Wanna.

The music-driven series blends 1870s English aristocracy with a modern soundtrack produced by Stella Mozgawa (of the band Warpaint) with songs from Taylor Swift, Boygenius, Maggie Rogers, Bikini Kill, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Angel Olsen and Brandi Carlile, original music from Folick, Lucius, Alison Mosshart, Warpaint, Gracie Abrams, Sharon Van Etten, Bully and Danielle Ponder as well as series composers AVAWAVES.

  1. It doesn’t look like we can stream Doctor Who in New Zealand at the moment so I hope Disney+ will include every episode from November 😁

  2. It looks like I may get my wish as the BBC have announced they will be screening every episode of Doctor Who including extras on their iplayer from November 1st. Now just need Disney to make the same announcement 😁
