Trailer - The Pacific

It's going to be extreamly dfficult for Steven Speilberg and Tom Hanks to produce something better than Band Of Brothers - easily the best miniseries of the decade. In 2010 we will see how they've directed their attention to World War Two's Pacific campaign in a new epic ten-hour miniseries which tracks the intertwined odysseys of three U.S. Marines, Robert Leckie (James Badge Dale), Eugene Sledge (Joe Mazzello) and John Basilone (Jon Seda) across the vast canvas of the Pacific. The extraordinary experiences of these men and their fellow Marines take them from the first clash with the Japanese in the haunted jungles of Guadalcanal, through the impenetrable rain forests of Cape Gloucester, across the blasted coral strongholds of Peleliu, up the black sand terraces of Iwo Jima, through the killing fields of Okinawa, to the triumphant, yet uneasy, return home after V-J Day. Produced by HBO Films in association with Playtone and DreamWorks Television, and scheduled to debut on HBO in early 2010.

Looks promising! This could be the Band of Brothers follow up we've been waiting for. Also, good to see you again, Col!
