DETAILS: This epic ten-part miniseries tracks the intertwined odysseys of three U.S. Marines – Robert Leckie (James Badge Dale), Eugene Sledge (Joe Mazzello) and John Basilone (Jon Seda) – across the vast canvas of the Pacific Theater during World War II.  It follows these men and their fellow Marines from their first battle with the Japanese on Guadalcanal, through the rain forests of Cape Gloucester and the strongholds of Peleliu, across the bloody sands of Iwo Jima and the horror of Okinawa, and finally to their triumphant but uneasy return home after V-J Day.  The HBO Miniseries presentation of a Playtone and DreamWorks production is executive produced by Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg and Gary Goetzman, the producing team behind the Emmy®- and Golden Globe-winning 2001 HBO miniseries “Band of Brothers”; Hanks and Goetzman also executive produced the 2008 HBO miniseries “John Adams,” which won a record
