De Niro to host spec on ‘9/11’

CBS presentation to include unseen footage of attacks

Robert De Niro has signed on to host “9/11,” a CBS primetime presentation featuring never-before-broadcast video of the World Trade Center attacks.

Set to air March 10, “9/11” will feature footage by filmmakers Gedeon and Jules Naudet, who were at the World Trade Center filming a documentary on Sept. 11, when the twin towers were hit by commercial jetliners in a terrorist attack.

De Niro is a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Center, located just a few blocks from Ground Zero.

“Robert De Niro is a quintessential New Yorker who has been instrumental in building up the TriBeCa neighborhood, in the very area of the city that was devastated by the September 11 attacks,” said Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter, one of the presentation’s producers, who introduced De Niro to the project.

Because the Naudets have asked that the spec help raise money for the Uniformed Firefighters Assn. Scholarship Fund, the Eye net decided it would be inappropriate for a CBS News staffer to serve as host.
