USA Acquires 9/11 Film Starring Melissa Leo

It is the channel's first-ever film festival purchase.

USA announced Thursday that it has purchased The Space Between, a drama starring Melissa Leo as a flight attendant who forms a bond with a 10-year-old Pakistani-American boy traveling by himself on 9/11.

Written and directed by Travis Fine, the movie premiered in the spring at the Tribeca Film Festival. 
It is the channel’s first festival acquisition.
The Space Between will air on Sept. 11, 2011, to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks, the channel said.
