CNN TO PRESENT HBO DOCUMENTARY TRIANGLE: REMEMBERING THE FIRE, MARKING THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE TRIANGLE SHIRTWAIST FACTORY FIRE, ON SATURDAY, MARCH 26

NEW YORK, March 23, 2011 - CNN will present the HBO documentary TRIANGLE: REMEMBERING THE FIRE this SATURDAY, MARCH 26 at 11:00 p.m. (ET)/8:00 p.m. (PT), it was announced jointly today by HBO and CNN.

"We are so pleased that CNN has chosen to recognize this important documentary by broadcasting it on the network," commented Sheila Nevins, president, HBO Documentary Films.

TRIANGLE: REMEMBERING THE FIRE tells an historic story that is still relevant today. On March 25, 1911, a catastrophic fire broke out at the Triangle Waist Company in New York City. Trapped inside the upper floors of a ten-story building, 146 workers - mostly young immigrant women and teenage girls - were burned alive or forced to jump to their deaths to escape an inferno that consumed the factory in just 18 minutes. It was the worst disaster at a workplace in New York State until 9/11. The tragedy changed the course of history, paving the way for government to represent working people, not just business, for the first time, and helped an emerging American middle class to live the American Dream.

TRIANGLE: REMEMBERING THE FIRE, which debuted March 21 on HBO, was directed by Daphne Pinkerson; produced by Daphne Pinkerson and Marc Levin; written by Michael Hirsch, Richard Lowe and Daphne Pinkerson; scenes from "The Triangle Factory Fire Scandal" directed by Mel Stuart. For HBO: senior producer, Nancy Abraham; executive producer, Sheila Nevins.
