Apple announces new “9/11: Inside the President’s War Room” Apple TV+ documentary
Apple has announced a new documentary special coming to Apple TV+ this year that tells the story of 9/11 through the eyes of the presidency, featuring interviews with the key decision makers who responded during a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks to the United States in 2001.
The documentary special will feature never-before-heard testimonies with President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice (national security advisor), Colin Powell (secretary of state), and many more. It will also feature nearly 200 never previously published photographs of the aftermath of the attacks.
The documentary is produced in partnership with the BBC in the UK. The special will air in September in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of 9/11, available on the BBC One channel before coming to Apple TV+. Elsewhere the show will debut on Apple TV+ exclusively.
Narrated by Emmy Award winner Jeff Daniels (“The Looming Tower,” “The Comey Rule”), “9/11: Inside the President’s War Room” recounts the 12 hours after the strike on that momentous day, offering rare and unique insight into the dilemmas of decision-making against the clock, as those involved provide intimate, revealing and heartfelt details for the first time.
