From executive producer Steven Spielberg and Discovery Channel comes the story of hope from darkness, life from ashes, a dream born from a nightmare.

The non fiction broadcaster will air 'Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero' from 12- 17 September at 9 pm. This will showcase the men and women determined to rebuild and restore a sacred site, constructing the new, 104-story One World Trade Center.

Coinciding with the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, the show celebrates the grit, the drive and the audacious imagination of a wide array of builder, planner and dreamers bonded in grief but united in purpose. From the iron workers who lost brothers and friends to the architect envisions a new dawn for New York City to the family members who seek closure and solace, the show assembles a cast of real people facing the highest stakes in their professional lives - to meet their construction deadline.

Discovery senior VP, GM South-Asia Rahul Johri said, "Rising:
Rebuilding Ground Zero salutes the spirit of endeavour and brings emotional stories of people's professional involvement in this mega-construction project. It is a tribute to the brave souls that lost their lives on 9/11 as well as the people who made the memorial a reality."

The show will take a look at one of the most daunting construction jobs America has ever undertaken. Building four skyscrapers, a transportation hub, a museum and a memorial featuring the largest man-made waterfall in history - at the same time on the same site - presents an unprecedented set of engineering challenges. From the design to the materials to the raw emotions and heavy hearts, the show chronicles the teamwork and innovation involved in reining in a beast of planning, timing and coordination. The special event series also looks at the rebirth of Lower Manhattan through the eyes of the residents who survived the horrors of 9/11 to reclaim and rebuild their neighborhood.
