NEW YORK, NY – (January 4, 2023) – To commemorate the anniversary, CNN will air a special presentation of the discovery+ original film, January 6th, on Saturday, January 7 at 8p ET on CNN.

Produced by Propagate, Emmy® and Peabody® winning directors Gédéon and Jules Naudet (CNN Films Presents 9/11, November 13: Attack on Paris, and The Presidents Gatekeepers) examine January 6th from the unique perspective of the heroes, first responders, and survivors of the attack.

Contee III, Congresswoman Liz Cheney, and over 50 Senators, Representatives, staffers from both sides of the aisle, and police officers as they reveal their first-hand experience of the attack.

January 6th is the only project for which the Capitol and Metropolitan Police Departments granted full access to their officers.
