The Pacific (TV Mini-Series 2010) Poster

(2010 TV Mini-Series)

Trivia

Originally the project was estimated at $100 million to produce, but ended up costing over $200 million, making The Pacific the most expensive television miniseries ever created by any network.
It is due to Rami Malek's performance in "The Pacific" (2010) that he was chosen to play the lead role in the TV Series "Mr. Robot" (2015)
Based on the books; "With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa" and "China Marine" by Eugene Sledge, "Helmet For My Pillow" by Robert Leckie and "Red Blood, Black Sand" by Chuck Tatum.
Trying to avoid the long shooting and production process of Band of brothers (2001), which took several years, The Pacific had several units shooting episodes at the same time all over 2009.
