Originally broadcast in April of 1998, the epic miniseries From the Earth to the Moon was HBO's most expensive production to date, with a budget of $68 million. Hosted by executive producer Tom Hanks, the miniseries tackles the daunting challenge of chronicling the entire history of NASA's Apollo space program from 1961 to 1972, with each episode devoted to a different crucial aspect of the Apollo program. From President Kennedy's famous speech before Congress on May 25, 1961, all the way to putting the first man on the moon.

 

“It somehow manages to achieve its improbable goal of getting us excited about exploring the heavens again while weaving a definitive tapestry certain to enlighten future generations.” – Variety

“It is a diligent, well-crafted work that never spins out of control despite its grandiose conception” – Time

Starring Tom Hanks (The Pacific), Nick Searcy (Justified), Tim Daly (Madam Secretary), David Andrews (Shooter), and Stephen Root (Barry).
