9/12

9/12

How did 9/11 the day become 9/11 the idea? That question drives Pineapple Street Studios and award-winning host Dan Taberski (Missing Richard Simmons, Running From COPS, The Line) to shift the focus to what happened on 9/12, and every day after that. 9/12 is a poignant, surprising, and surprisingly funny seven episode series about people who wake up on 9/12 having to navigate a new, radically altered world. A teenager gets caught up in an out-of-control conspiracy theory that he helped start. A Pakistani business owner finds hundreds of his Brooklyn neighbors are disappearing. Joke-writers at The Onion must figure out just how soon is “too soon”? 9/12 asks what it all means. We know what happened on 9/11. But what happened on 9/12 to alter our memory and our perspective forever? All seven episodes of 9/12 are available to stream now on Amazon Music or Wondery+. Episodes will release weekly everywhere starting September 8th.

9/11 & Fear: In their final report, the 9/11 Commission declared that of all the mistakes the U.S. made prior to the terrorist attacks, the greatest was “a failure of imagination.” Which is why -- in a story that has never been told -- the Department of Defense and the CIA established an ongoing relationship with a secret brain trust of Hollywood’s most famous writers and directors to help prevent the next 9/11.
