Gideon Yago Writing a Vietnam War Drama

Director Gideon Yago attends the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival LA Reception at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on March 18, 2013 in Beverly Hills, California.

Former Newsroom writer and MTV News correspondent Gideon Yago will write a drama for Starz, the network announced today. Airbone is about the early days of the Vietnam War as seen through the eyes of the young men in a helicopter unit, and according to Starz's statement, the show will be "both surreal and stylized." Spartacus's Rob Tapert will executive-produce, so perhaps "surreal and stylized" is just code for "basically endless dude nudity."
