Netflix has ordered the uniquely presented four-part combat drama “The Liberator” about one of the bloodiest and most dramatic events during World War II.
Based on Alex Kershaw’s novel of the same name and created by “Die Hard” and “The Fugitive” writer Jeb Stuart, the action follows the 157th Infantry Regiment from Oklahoma.
The National Guard unit was comprised primarily of cowboys, Native Americans and Mexican-Americans and this follows them from the Invasion of Italy to the liberation of the concentration camp of Dachau.
The series will blend live-action with a specific patent-pending technology known as ‘Trioscope Enhanced Hybrid Animation’ which combines computer generated images with live-action performance.
A+E Studios and Unique Features will produce the project which Grzegorz Jonkajtys will direct and executive produce alongside Kershaw, L.C. Crowley, Brandon Barr, Mark Apen, Bob Shaye, Michael Lynne, Sarah Victor and Barry Jossen.
