MANHATTAN — Academy Award-winning filmmaker Steven Spielberg will produce Rebuilding Ground Zero, a six-part television series set to premiere on the Science Channel in 2011, the network announced Friday.

The series will chronicle the reconstruction of the World Trade Center site through interviews with architects, engineers, construction workers and city planners.

Spielberg will serve as executive producer and creative advisor.

Each episode will focus on one aspect of the reconstruction — from the 1,776-foot tower at One World Trade Center to the underground museum, memorial, park and transportation hub, all currently under construction.
