FOR TV HIGHLIGHTS CONSIDERATION:
"GROUND ZERO RISING: FREEDOM VS. FEAR"
As the fifteenth anniversary of 9/11 approaches, the World Trade Center site has become a place unlike any other. It is the sacred ground where more than 2600 people lost their lives, but now it is also something more: a vibrant public, commercial, and retail space that stands as a testament to American tenacity, rebirth and resilience. Reported by CNBC's own Jim Cramer, this original documentary tells the story of the redevelopment of the 16-acre site, complete with the solemn memorial pools, a new park, an architecturally staggering transportation hub, and new office towers. Soaring above it all is One World Trade Center, the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere at 1776 feet high, and at a cost of $4 billion, the most expensive skyscraper ever built. Elaborately fortified and designed to thwart an attack, it boasts cutting-edge security features and was built with perhaps the strongest mix of concrete ever devised. The redevelopment of the site, a long time in the making with several years yet to go, is caught in the tension of hope and rebuilding on the one hand, and apprehension on the other. It is both an iconic destination and a potential terrorist target. CNBC cameras get exclusive and unprecedented access inside the new security command center at the complex, and viewers hear a threat assessment from a former FBI Special Agent who helped lead the agency's New York City anti-terrorism task force following 9/11.
Jim Cramer interviews the movers and shakers who spent billions and fought epic political battles to bring the World Trade Center complex back to life. He profiles everyday men and women who inhabit the new site: a young cop on the beat, an older tour guide, and a stone mason, each with a painful connection back to 9/11 and a determination to honor those they lost. Cramer also tells the story of a man who fled the towers on 9/11, only to relocate his company, years later, in of all places … One World Trade Center.
