Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero debuts tonight, telling the story of people involved

Tonight, the Discovery Channel debuts Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero, a documentary executive produced by Steven Spielberg that tells the stories of people who are working to rebuild Ground Zero in New York City.

Discovery says the six-hour special—which airs from 8 to 11 p.m. tonight and next Thursday, Sept. 1, and is commercial-free thanks to a sponsorship by Chevrolet—“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” and “assembles a cast of real people facing the highest stakes in their professional lives — to meet their construction deadline and to do honor to the victims and their families.”

Here’s a clip from the documentary, which will re-air Sept. 11 on Science Channel:
