In less than a week, the country will observe the 10-year anniversary of the worst terrorist attack on American soil — 9/11. ReelzChannel is remembering that tragic day and the changes it brought with 9/11: Ten Years Later.
The one-hour special looks at how 9/11 affected movies, entertainment, and pop culture, including how the entertainment industry responded with segments on the Concert for New York and the birth of the Tribeca Film Festival.
Harvey Weinstein, the chairman of Weinstein Co., was one of the organizers for Concert for New York, the benefit concert that took place Oct. 20, 2001, and raised more than $35 million for victims' families. Weinstein talked to ReelzChannel about the event and what it meant to him.
9/11: Ten Years Later also features exclusive interviews with Matt Damon and Mark Wahlberg. You can watch it this Friday at 4PM ET / 1PM PT and Saturday at 7PM ET / 4PM PT. ReelzChannel is Dish 299, DirecTV 238, and available on your cable system.
