Spielberg produces World Trade Center documentary series

An interesting announcement was unveiled this weekend by the Discovery network: Oscar-winning director Steven Spielberg will produce a documentary series on the rebuilding of New York's World Trade Center.

Titled Rebuilding Ground Zero, the TV series will air on the Science Channel sometime in 2011. Obviously it's a impressive the little watched Science Channel was able to pull off such a great addition, and could be a testament to the direction the Discovery network wants to take the series.

New York mayor Michael Bloomberg said Spielberg's involvement ensures "the story will be brought to life for people around the world for generations to come."

Spielberg will also bring his penchant for hi-tech visuals as the the series will use 3D, time-lapse cameras, computer modelling techniques and other methods to chart the construction of One World Trade Center.
