The Pacific is a World War II television drama miniseries, produced by HBO, Seven Network Australia and DreamWorks, which is currently in production. It is similar, although unrelated, to Band of Brothers. Whereas Band of Brothers focused on the Army's involvement in the European Theater of Operations, the new series will be about the Marine Corps's actions in the Pacific Theater of Operations.
The Pacific is being spearheaded by Bruce McKenna (co-executive producer), who was one of the main writers on Band of Brothers. Hugh Ambrose, the son of Band of Brothers author Stephen Ambrose, will serve as a project consultant
I always wanted Band of Brothers to be longer but this might be a very good alternative.
