LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - History will reach for the sky with an airborne follow-up to its Emmy-winning "WWII in HD" miniseries on November 9.
"WWII in HD: The Air War" tells the story of the American 8th Air Force's battle to defeat the German Luftwaffe in the months leading up to D-Day. Sean Astin, Chris O'Donnell and Elijah Wood are lending their voices to historical participants in the wartime drama. Rob Lowe narrates.
The miniseries uses largely never-before-seen color footage of air battles that has been remastered to HD-level quality.
One of the stories being told will be that of "60 Minutes" veteran Andy Rooney, who was a reporter for Stars & Stripes during the battle.
Elijah voices Andy Rooney.
