Discovery Channel to air special on Bin Laden’s death

Discovery Channel will air what will most likely be the first documentary on Osama Bin Laden’s death. The one-hour special will examine the U.S. Special Forces’ attack on Bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan which the CIA had been monitoring since last year.

The documentary, which New York Magazine calls an “insta-mentary,” will debut on May 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Discovery Channel. The special will be appropriately titled KILLING BIN LADEN (WT), according to a Discovery press release.

“Bringing Osama Bin Laden to justice is one of the biggest stories of our country’s lifetime,” said Discovery Channel President and GM, Clark Bunting in a statement.

Blunt also told New York Magazine, “We want to bring as much added context and in-depth historical insight to the story as we can.”

Encore airings of KILLING BIN LADEN (WT) will air on Discovery Communications- Military Channel, Science Channel ID and Planet Green in the United States. The special will also air internationally within Discovery’s portfolio of global networks.
