Five Came Back (Netflix) -- 3 part docuseries on WWII & Hollywood

Netflix today releases the trailer and confirms a March 31st launch date for its new original documentary series Five Came Back. Adapted from Mark Harris' best-selling book, "Five Came Back: A Story of Hollywood and the Second World War," and directed by Laurent Bouzereau, the three-part docuseries tells the extraordinary story of how Hollywood changed World War II - and how World War II changed Hollywood, through the interwoven experiences of five filmmakers who interrupted their successful careers to serve their country, risk their lives and bring the truth back to the American people: John Ford, William Wyler, John Huston, Frank Capra, and George Stevens. To guide viewers through the different personalities, interweaving chronologies and globe-trotting locales, the Five Came Back team turned to the voices of five modern cinematic masters: Steven Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola, Guillermo Del Toro, Paul Greengrass and Lawrence Kasdan. Three-time Oscar-winner Meryl Streep provides the narration for Five Came Back.

Might be worth mentioning that this series is directed by Laurent Bouzereau, who has directed quite a few extensive DVD/BD feature length making of documentaries.
