His latest drama is expected to premiere in 2021 to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the terror attacks on the United States on Sept. 11, 2001.

"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," a network press release said.
