WHEN POP CULTURE SAVED AMERICA: A 9/11 STORY Premieres Tonight, Includes ONE LIFE Actors

WHEN POP CULTURE SAVED AMERICA: A 9/11 STORY, a 90-minute documentary premiering tonight at 8 p.m. on the Biography Channel, takes a look at the initial days and weeks after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and the impact had on movies, music, television, and the arts.

In the aftermath of 9/11, getting back to normal would not be a simple task. For those in the world of pop culture and entertainment, the challenge was how to help America achieve that goal--to cheer the country up during its darkest days. This documentary takes a comprehensive look at the days and months following the attack--to show how the non-news media pitched in to bring the nation together.

Comedians, singers, actors, entertainers all did their part with concerts, telethons and specials. Television, movies, Broadway, music and even sports helped bring us back to the new normal. The special also reviews the impact of the events of 9/11 on pop culture and how TV and films were changed forever.
