HBO's 2001 series Band of Brothers is based on Stephen E. Ambrose's book of the same name. It is a fictionalized version of the Easy Company, aka the paratrooper unit of the U.S. 101st Airborne Division in World War II. However, the book and the show are both based on real events.

Created by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, the cast includes Damian Lewis, Scott Grimes, Ron Livingston, Shane Taylor, and Donnie Wahlberg, among others. According to IMDb, the show is a dramatization of the history of the Easy Company. It portrays the troops as they begin jump training in the US and their participation in the action in Europe right until the end of World War II when Japan surrendered.

The ten-episode show has been available to stream on Netflix since September 2023.
