Los Angeles, CA - OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network, in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of September 11th, will premiere two back-to-back documentary specials, "Twins of the Twin Towers" (9:00 - 10:15 p.m. ET/PT) immediately followed by "From the Ground Up" (10:15 - 11:00 p.m. ET/PT) Sunday, September 11.
"From the Ground Up" is the story of five widows of firefighters killed on September 11, 2011. It is their journey, taking two steps forward and one step back, through tears, depression and laughter, to triumph through tragedy. Lifting our spirits, they empower their communities and honor their heroic husbands in the most fitting personal ways they can imagine. The special is produced by Gage & Gage Productions.
"The Twins of the Twin Towers" explores the previously untold personal stories of twins who were left twinless on September 11, 2001. On the day the Twin Towers collapsed, so too did the lives of over 40 twins worldwide. The film delves into the unique connection these brave siblings shared, and the process they've endured for dealing with their devastating loss and moving forward with their lives. The documentary is produced by BBC Wales, directed and produced by Olivia Lichtenstein and executive produced by Tim Green.
