Composer Jeremy Turner led an AFM Local 47 orchestra at the Warner Bros. Eastwood Scoring Stage in January to score the Netflix docu-series Five Came Back.
Adapted from the best-selling book by Mark Harris and directed by Laurent Bouzereau, the three-part series tells the extraordinary story of how Hollywood changed World War II -– and how World War II changed Hollywood — through the interwoven experiences of five filmmakers who interrupted their successful careers to serve their country, risk their lives and bring the truth back to the American people: John Ford, William Wyler, John Huston, Frank Capra, and George Stevens.
To guide viewers through the different personalities, interweaving chronologies and globe-trotting locales, the Five Came Back team turned to the voices of five modern cinematic masters: Steven Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola, Guillermo Del Toro, Paul Greengrass and Lawrence Kasdan. Three-time Oscar-winner Meryl Streep provides the narration.
The Netflix series premiered March 31, 2017 only on Netflix.
