Discovery Debuts ‘Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero’

NYC Skyline at NightI can remember exactly where I was and how I felt on September 11, 2001, as I am sure all of you can. While we remember those we lost in New York City, Washington, D.C. and Pennsylvania (including our Discovery colleague Elizabeth Wainio), Discovery Channel & Science are also looking forward with Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero.

Executive Produced by Steven Spielberg, the six-part series premieres commercial-free on Thursday, August 25, at 8pm ET/PT on Discovery and celebrates the men and women who are bonded and driven by single purpose — re-imagining and rebuilding the former site of the World Trade Center’s twin towers.

We invite you to check out a preview of the special, to find out more about the project through the Behind the Fence blog and to, most importantly, take some time to learn about two charities we are supporting: the Tribute WTC Visitor Center and the FealGood Foundation (featured in videos below).
