By the looks of the second trailer for the HBO series The Pacific, we should be in for a mighty series next year -as if there was any doubt.
The WWII drama will screen on Seven. It premieres in the US in March.
Seven programming boss Tim Worner previously told TV Tonight, “It’s extremely powerful. I’ve now seen 3 episodes of that show. You don’t watch that show, you feel that show. It is the last of the great miniseries because of the economic model in the US. There will never be another miniseries like that where they spend over $200m making it. It just won’t happen.”
The series from Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks was predominantly filmed in Victoria and Queensland. Channel Seven is cleverly screening episodes of their former Band of Brothers over summer, no doubt as a strategy to whet our appetite for The Pacific.
Clearly one of 2010’s viewing highlights.
