In commemoration of the 10th anniversary of September 11, executive producer Steven Spielberg, DreamWorks Television, Discovery Channel and Science Channel will present a special television event.
"Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero" focuses on the effort to build the new, 104-story One World Trade Center.
According to a press release, the project "celebrates the grit, the drive and the audacious imagination of a wide array of builders, planners and dreamers bonded in grief but united in purpose."
“Discovery Channel is proud to be sharing this important story and transitional moment in the history of our country," said Debbie Myers, general manager of Science Channel. "With incredible access and deft storytelling, 'Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero' captures a city and a country moving forward but never forgetting."
The six-hour special will premiere commercial free August 25 at 8 p.m. on Discovery Channel and conclude September 1. An all day, encore marathon will be shown on Science Channel on September 11 beginning at 5 p.m.
