Watch Masters of the Air: Synopsis

Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg conquered land and sea already with their previous World War II dramas, Band of Brothers (2001) and The Pacific (2010), both of which took home the Emmy Award for Outstanding Miniseries. Now they’re gifting us an aerial perspective on that global conflict as an A-list cast swoop into action to bring the story of the 100th Bomb Group to nerve-shredding life. Read on for our guide on how to watch Masters of the Air online where you are.

Masters of the Air is a 9-part event produced for Apple TV Plus, brought to the screen by John Shiban (Breaking Bad), John Orloff (Band of Brothers), and executive producers Spielberg and Hanks. Based on the book by Donald L. Miller, called Masters of the Air: America’s Bomber Boys Who Fought the Air War Against Nazi Germany, the series follows the heroic and life-changing actions of the pilots of the 100th Bomb Group (nicknamed the “Bloody Hundredth” for the heavy losses they suffered) and the Tuskegee Airmen that fought alongside them.

Characteristic of an Apple TV Plus Production, its epic in scale and looks every dollar of its reported $250 million budget. It also boasts an incredible bounty of A-list actors: among them Austin Butler (Elvis), Callum Turner (The Boys in the Boat), and Barry Keoghan (Saltburn). Meanwhile, Bel Powley (The Morning Show) features as Alexandra "Sandra" Wingate, and Ncuti Gatwi (Barbie, Doctor Who) continues his Hollywood ascent in the role of 2nd Lt. Robert Daniels.

Promising nail-biting heroics as US airmen sacrifice everything and take to the skies to halt the Nazi killing machine, this miniseries promises to be another spectacular, wildly entertaining hit for Spielberg and co.
