Netflix has premiered the trailer and announced a March 31st launch date for its new original three-part documentary series “Five Came Back” based on Mark Harris’ best-selling book.
The story details the experiences of five filmmakers who interrupted their successful careers to serve their country during WW2, risk their lives and bring the truth back to the American people.
Those five? John Ford, William Wyler, John Huston, Frank Capra, and George Stevens. To guide viewers, five modern cinematic masters – Steven Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola, Guillermo del Toro, Paul Greengrass and Lawrence Kasdan – offer their input while Meryl Streep provides the narration.
Laurent Bouzereau helms the doco which will be presented in conjunction with thirteen documentaries discussed in the series like “The Battle of Midway,” “The Memphis Belle, “Report from the Aleutians” and “The Negro Soldier”.
