Mark Boal to Adapt Fall and Rise: The Story of 9/11 for ABC

-

Academy Award-winning producer and screenwriter Mark Boal, best known for penning the screenplays for Zero Dark Thirty and The Hurt Locker, is set to adapt Mitchell Zuckoff’s Harper Collins book Fall and Rise: The Story of 9/11 (buy here) for ABC.

As previously announced, the network is developing a limited series in 2021 inspired by the bestselling book to commemorate and honor the 20th anniversary of the events of September 11. The series will be produced by Lionsgate and 3 Arts Entertainment, and executive produced by Erwin Stoff and Richard Abate of 3 Arts as well as Mitchell Zuckoff. Boal will also executive produce.

Zuckoff’s Fall and Rise chronicles the stories of those who were lost, saved and forever altered by the most heinous acts of terrorism on American soil. The television adaptation will attempt to be a portrait of American resilience in the face of tragedy and an accounting of 9/11’s aftermath decades later.

In 2009, Mark Boal wrote and produced The Hurt Locker, for which he won both the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and the Academy Award for Best Picture, as well as BAFTA and Writers Guild of America Awards for Best Original Screenplay. In 2012, he wrote and produced Zero Dark Thirty, teaming again with director Kathryn Bigelow, about the tracking and killing of Osama bin Laden. The film earned him Academy Award nominations for Best Original Screenplay and Best Picture, and also BAFTA and Writers Guild of America Awards for Best Original Screenplay.

Mitchell Zuckoff is an award-winning investigative journalist and Pulitzer prize nominee, who was a member of the Boston Globe Spotlight Team. On 9/11, he led a team of reporters and wrote the lead news story for the Globe about the attacks. He is the author of seven previous books and serves as the Sumner M. Redstone Professor of Narrative Studies at Boston University.
