Spielberg will act as executive producer and advisor on the project
Oscar-winning director Steven Spielberg is to produce a TV documentary series on the rebuilding of New York's World Trade Center, to be shown in 2011.
Rebuilding Ground Zero will chronicle the engineering and building of the skyscraper being built on the site of the World Trade Center's Twin Towers.
It will also pay tribute to those who died in the 11 September 2001 attacks.
New York mayor Michael Bloomberg said the series would tell "a compelling story of remembrance and renewal".
He said Spielberg's involvement as executive producer would ensure "the story will be brought to life for people around the world for generations to come".
The Science Channel series will use 3D, time-lapse cameras, computer modelling techniques and other methods to chart the construction of One World Trade Center.
Formerly known as the Freedom Tower, the 1,776 foot (541 meter) skyscraper will be the tallest building in the US.
Work on the building officially began in 2006 and is scheduled to be completed in 2013.
Rebuilding Ground Zero will be produced by the Science Channel, a division of the Discovery network.
