EP_BOX SETS_Generation Kill_Feb 19
The new face of American war.
Highly trained young Marines of the First Reconnaissance Battalion struggle with inadequate supplies, bureaucratic snafus and poor communication as they lead the drive into Baghdad during the first weeks of the war in Iraq, in a seven-part miniseries based on the best-selling nonfiction book by embedded Rolling Stone correspondent Evan Wright where he chronicles his experiences during the first wave of the American-led assault on Baghdad in 2003.
“Vivid storytelling, superb acting and a frank approach make this a TV landmark.” — Orlando Sentinel.
“It’s as addictive and absorbing, in its own way, as The Wire.” — Chicago Tribune.
“An engrossing, detailed military character drama, Generation Kill is a modern-day "Band of Brothers," a warts-and-all account that hits closer to home because it depicts such recent events.” — Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Starring Alexander Skarsgård (Big Little Lies), James Ransone (The First), Lee Tergesen (The Purge), Jon Huertas (This Is Us), Wilson Bethel (Daredevil), Kellan Lutz (The Comeback).
Box set starts 7.30pm Sunday 24th February
