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."
