Hemel Hempstead Old Town has been transformed into the setting for a new Apple TV series from Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks.

Masters of The Air is a new World War two series which is a follow up to the critically acclaimed dramas Band of Brothers and The Pacific expected to air in 2022.

Filming was supposed to start at the beginning of August but was put back due to the pandemic, crews were spotted filming on September 6 and 7.

The show is based on Donald L Miller’s book Masters of the Air: America’s Bomber Boys Who Fought The Air War Against Nazi Germany.

In a letter to residents the production team said it would “hide signs of modern life” and keep disruption to a minimum.

Scenes have also been filmed in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Essex.

The Old Town has also been the setting for Ricky Gervais’ After Life, Endeavour and Grantchester.
