FX has a Vietnam War series in development, with an Oscar winner as executive producer. Deadline.com reports that Stephen Gaghan is exec producing “They Marched Into Sunlight,” a six-part limited series.

The project, from Fox 21 and FX Productions, is based on the bestselling book from Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Maraniss. The project looks at the Vietnam War from the perspective of both the battlefield and in the U.S., focusing on two events in 1967: a student protest in the U.S. against the makers of Napalm, and an ambush in the Vietnam jungles.

Gaghan won the Academy Award for writing the screenplay for "Traffic."
