HBO Picks Up The Wright Brothers As Next Miniseries :: TV :: News :: Paste

HBO has been a heavyweight in the miniseries division with award-winning submissions such as Band of Brothers, The Pacific and Olive Kitteridge. Their newest one is now taking flight and involves the story of the Wright brothers, according to Deadline.

The premium cable network is teaming with Playtone, along with Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman to produce their next project, which is based on the David McCullough book The Wright Brothers, which tells the story of Wilbur and Orville Wright, and how they sold and repaired bicycles on their way to their invention of the airplane.

And I’m still waiting for a release date on Masters of the Air.
