Hanks’ swinging sixties
TOM Hanks will produce a historical 10-part documentary series about the swinging 1960s. The actor teams up with producers at US news network CNN and Herzog & Company to start the first part of the series, which focuses on the assassination of John F. Kennedy, in November. ‘‘From protests to war, to human rights, the Beatles, innovative technologies, and politics, the 1960s were an extraordinary era of consequential cultural and global change,’’ says CNN president Jeff Zucker. Hanks’ producing credits include From the Earth to the Moon and Band of Brothers.
