9/11 In Memoriam: USA Network Presents The Space Between & Documentary Short: The Twin Towers!
To honor the 10th anniversary of 9/11 today, USA Network will present the world television premiere of THE SPACE BETWEEN starring Oscar and Golden Globe-winner Melissa Leo, followed by the Academy Award-winning documentary TWIN TOWERS.
The Space Between and Twin Towers Preview:
In THE SPACE BETWEEN, troubled flight attendant Montine McLeod (Leo) befriends a 10-year old Pakistani-American boy on the morning of September 11th, 2001. Later discovering that the boy’s father actually works in the Trade Center, she commits to driving him back home to his uncertain future in NYC, only to discover a renewed and more complex definition of national unity along the way.
The Space Between Preview:
TWIN TOWERS shares the true story of the profound courage of two brothers, a New York City policeman and fireman. The footage was originally shot for a Dick Wolf reality-TV pilot about a NYC police squad – no one could have known when he began filming that terrorists would tragically claim the lives of 14 of the men.
This film won an Oscar for best short doc in 2002.
For entertainment lovers, I know it may be a very emotional weekend with so many 9/11 specials and features. We might even feel like turning off the TV altogether. Yet at this time of remembrance, THE SPACE BETWEEN really does convey a message of hope – that while every character is different, what we have in common is stronger than what divides us.
Both films are part of USA’s ongoing Characters Unite campaign to end discrimination and will be presented commercial-free beginning at 9/8c on Sunday.
There will also be appearances by
Sharif Atkins of WHITE COLLAR,
Gina Torres of SUITS and
Fred Weller of IN PLAIN SIGHT.
And it will be a true two-way conversation: viewers can discuss the key issues with each other live during an online Character Chatter experience.
Please take the time to watch these films. They are powerful, meaningful and a commemoration of what we all had to endure during that very frightful and fateful day.
