The shooter will describe the events leading up to and during the raid that took place in May 2011, including his elite training and involvement in Operation Neptune Spear, the mission that killed bin Laden. He'll also offer his first-hand account of what happened during the SEAL Team 6 raid. Fox News promises that the documentary will include never-before-shared details.

The Navy SEAL will recall confronting bin Laden, the leader's final moments and what happened when he took his last breath. The documentary will also include a behind-the-scenes look at the secret ceremony where bin Laden's killer donated the shirt he was wearing during the mission to the 9/11 museum in New York.

Fox News' special is set to air from 10-11 p.m. ET on both nights and will be hosted by the network's Washington correspondent Peter Doocy.
