One of Warner’s most curious strategies in the process of transforming its platform into Max and adjusting its plans is the sale of some of its products to other platforms. It makes sense considering they have even removed some of their original series and movies from their VOD service to cut costs. However, it still seems strange from an external perspective.
In fact, this has been the case with one of HBO’s greatest series of all time: Band of Brothers. Netflix has just premiered this drama on its platform worldwide, and it’s finding new life as yet another success on their streaming service. And the truth is, it’s well-deserved. Although Warner may not have utilized it properly, it’s an iconic series like few that have come later.
What is Band of Brothers about?
Band of Brothers tells the story of Easy Company, a U.S. Army battalion from the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, which fought in Europe during World War II. In addition to the fiction itself, the series includes interviews with survivors, recollections from journalists, and letters from soldiers during the war.
The series is based on the book of the same name by Stephen E. Ambrose and features an impressive cast, including Damian Lewis, Ron Livingston, Scott Grimes, Donnie Wahlberg, Neal McDonough, David Schwimmer, Rick Gomez, Michael Cudlitz, among others. They all come together to bring to life an epic, dramatic, and deeply profound story.
Upon its debut in 2001, the ten-episode series managed to captivate the world and ranked among the best series of the 21st century. However, 22 years later, it has found a new audience, providing many people with the opportunity to discover it and once again become moved by its story.
