Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks’ WWII miniseries is coming to Apple TV+.

Per multiple outlets, the third installment in the Band of Brothers and The Pacific saga will be the first series produced in-house by Apple.

The duo will executive produce Masters of the Air, a miniseries that focuses on American bombers during the war. Gary Goetzman, their collaborator on the two previous installments, will also executive produce, with Hanks and Goetzman’s Playtone and Spielberg’s Amblin Television producing the series with Apple.

While Band of Brothers and The Pacific aired on HBO, this time around the premium cabler decided to pass on the project. “After careful consideration, HBO decided not to move forward with Masters of the Air. We look forward to our next collaboration with Playtone and Amblin,” HBO said in a statement.

Apple TV+ launches on November 1.
