TLC's '9/11: Heroes of the 88th Floor': 'People Helping People' (Exclusive Video)
Ten years after the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, TLC presents an up close look at what it was like to be in the middle of the tragedy with its special, 9/11: Heroes of the 88th Floor. It premieres on Sept. 4 at 9 p.m., but The Hollywood Reporter has an exclusive first look at the special.
Narrated by Sex and the City and The Good Wife star Chris Noth, the two-hour special will show how the bravery of two men in the World Trade Center’s North Tower changed the lives of countless people on 9/11. Through interviews with survivors, archival footage, and recreations, viewers will learn how construction manager Frank De Martini and construction inspector Pablo Ortiz saved 77 people on the tower’s 88th floor and inspired others to do the same.
Watch THR’s exclusive sneak peek above.
