U.S. net Discovery Life Channel has set a July air date for the hour-long documentary Conjoined Twins: Miracle Separation (pictured), which chronicles the successful separation of conjoined sisters.

The special – produced by ABC News-owned Lincoln Square Productions – documents the journey of Elysse and Eric Mata as they prepare their conjoined 10-month-old twins Knatalye Hope and Adeline Faith – joined together from the ribcage to the pelvis and sharing several internal organs – for surgery.

Conjoined Twins: Miracle Separation – which bows on Discovery Life Channel on July 16 at 9 p.m. EST/PST – follows the Mata family through the birth and separation of Knatalye and Adeline, and highlights the complex 26-hour surgery performed by 12 surgeons, six anesthesiologists and eight surgical nurses at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston on February 17.

The series is exec produced by Roxanna Sherwood and senior produced by Jenna Millman for Lincoln Square Productions.
