A new project, We Who Are Alive and Remain, will tell the story of soldiers in the E Company (“Easy Company”) who did not make it into historian Stephen Ambrose’s Band of Brothers and the HBO series of the same title.
And Gray is also working on a documentary about leadership, to be narrated by former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling, that will focus on Major Richard Winters, who was the focus of Band of Brothers.
Gray says his interest in the D-Day assault came out of a childhood reach for the heroic. For the black and white.
“When I was about six years old, I picked up one of those World War II encyclopedias and was fascinated by the stories and the drama of the period,” he says. “When you’re a kid, these are your heroes.”
