    Default The Pacific


    The Pacific is a World War II television series, produced by HBO, currently in development. Similar to Band of Brothers, The Pacific will focus on the US involvement in the war in the Pacific Theater of Operations. The project is going to be spearheaded by Bruce McKenna who was also one of the main writers on Band of Brothers, although the series will not be associated with any of the characters from Band of Brothers.

    Production of the series is expected to commence in August 2007 in Australia with filming locations to include Far North Queensland, Melbourne and the Northern Territory.[1] The series has a budget of more than $150 million and the 10-part series is the most expensive ever made in Australia. While the producers HBO, Playtone and Dreamworks have not made an official comment about The Pacific, they have set up a production office in Melbourne and commenced casting.

    The series will tell the stories of two authors and and their fellow marine John Basilone, as the war against Japan rages across the Pacific.

    It is rumored that the series will follow a USO troupe who travel the Pacific trying to keep Allied soldiers entertained and morally upbeat about the war. By doing this, the writers will be able to intertwine through various soldiers and civilians who are caught in the conflict. We'll see the stories of cooks, nurses, pilots, infantry, and many others. There are rumors that the characters will be much more diverse than before, and therefore we'll probably see main characters that are Latino, Irish, British, African-American, etc.

    The series will feature many World War II battles such as Pearl Harbor, Midway, Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Iwo Jima, Okinawa, and Hiroshima.

    Production commenced in 2007 and it just aired now?
    Is this correct? Must be a massive production to take that long before it hits the airwaves?

    Compo claims yes, the lawsuits i would leave for the americans, they seem to have that special something the rest of the world doesn't have when it comes to those. I watched the episode on TV thought it was ok, ill give it a few more and see and then if i like it ill talk to uncle torrence.

    I was looking forward to this miniseries since finishing watching Band of Brothers all those years ago.
    Not what I expected or really wanted. Really didn't care about the characters unlike BoB!
