  • Where are the Marines?

    Does anyone remember a recent HBO production made in the style of "Band of Brothers" that followed a USMC unit through the Pacific during WW2? I heard a lot of hype about it and then it sort of disappeared. Did it run and I missed it? or what? Anyone got an answer to this one?
    And, on the same note, is it available on DVD? Thanks, jose

    It is still in development, should air later this year I believe, the trailer posted on YouTube has been removed though.

        IIRC, Captain Dale Dye is involved in this project which bodes well.
        A massive attack...a brigade against an army...three nights of battle...an unforgettable tragedy.

          It's still called : Band of Brothers, the Pacific Project

          It's in production with all gears, probably to be released in the fall.
          Looks like a sure winner:

            A belated thank you, gents, for the info. I am primarily interested in the Guadalcanal treatment as my dad was a young USMC officer there. I will surely be watching for the series. Semper Fi.
