The pair's as-yet-untitled show for the HBO network will tell the story of aerial wars fought by bombers enlisted in the Eighth Air Force, nicknamed The Mighty Eighth. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the duo's miniseries will be based on historian Donald L. Miller's nonfiction book "Masters of the Air: America's Bomber Boys Who Fought the Air War Against Nazi Germany."

Spielberg and Hanks will serve as executive producers on the TV epic, which follows several previous World War II collaborations together: the multi-Oscar-winning 1998 movie "Saving Private Ryan" and the hit miniseries "Band of Brothers" (2001) and "The Pacific" (2010).
