The View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck has signed on to be the host of a new series, Angels Among Us, for CMT.
The four-episode series features everyday men and women who believe they were delivered from tragedy through angelic encounters.
The debut episode will commemorate the 10-year anniversary of 9/11, featuring Genelle Guzman-McMillan, Ron DiFrancesco and John Yates, whose lives were forever changed when terrorists attacked the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
Guzman-McMillan was on the 13th floor of World Trade Tower One when it collapsed on top of her. As hope faded, she believes an angel held her hand until she became the last victim pulled from the rubble 27 hours later.
DiFrancesco was one of only four people survivors from above the impact zone of Tower Two, escaping death after he heard an otherworldly voice urging him to run into the fire. At the Pentagon, Yates pushed through massive injuries towards safety with the help of something extraordinary.
The true-life stories on Angels Among Us will be told through interviews with the survivors, eye-witness accounts and reenactments. Ranging from catastrophic car crashes to tornadoes, debilitating illnesses and the biggest terrorist attack in U.S. history, the show focuses on the tales of triumph told in the survivors’ own words.
Angels Among Us premieres Thursday, Sept. 15 at 9 p.m. on CMT.
