Steven Rosenbaum’s MagnifyMedia has partnered with filmmaker Pamela Yoder to produce the eight-part September 11th docuseries The Day The World Changed.
The series tracks the design, curation and construction of New York’s National 9/11 Memorial and Museum, including access to Rosenbaum and Yoder’s unseen footage — shot over the course of seven years – of the team behind the museum’s construction.
The Day The World Changed depicts the museum team’s conflicts as a reflection of America’s divided political environment. The series deploys a number of “young, engaged, questioning explorers,” including: Arjun Singh Sethi, adjunct professor of law at Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, and Baratunde Thurston, American writer, comedian and political commentator.
“The Rosenbaum/Yoder project has rare and revealing new footage that brings a new perspective to 9/11″ said M&C Media CEO Michael Cascio in a statement. Cascio also serves as executive producer on the project. “The behind-the-scenes issues that come to light are even more relevant 20 years after the attack.”
The filmmakers have also partnered with CBS News to provide both historical archives and interviews with the organization’s journalists.
The Day The World Changed is executive produced by M&C Media’s Cascio; Karol Martesko-Fenster, founder and chief content officer of Thought Engine Partners and partner/COO of Abramorama; and Joe Cantwell, strategic advisor at Abramorama.
The series is slated to premiere on the tragedy’s 20th anniversary on Sept. 11, 2021.
