Belfast-born actor Anthony Boyle stars in the upcoming "Masters of the Air."
"Masters of the Air," a new follow up miniseries to HBO’s "Band of Brothers" and "The Pacific," is headed to Apple TV+.
The 10-episode limited series is based on Donald L. Miller's book "Masters of the Air: America's Bomber Boys Who Fought the Air War Against Nazi Germany."
The series will follow the exploits of the United States' Eighth Air Force, also known as the Mighty Eighth, who brought the war to Hitler's doorstep during World War II.
Director Cary Joji Fukunaga ("True Detective," "007:No Time to Die") recently announced on Instagram that he had completed the first week of the show. The series has reportedly been filming in the UK for at least two months, according to The Daily Mail.
