EPIX TO AIR TWA FLIGHT 800 FOLLOWING RECENT NTSB DECISION

TO NOT RE-OPEN INVESTIGATION INTO FATAL 1996 PLANE CRASH  

 EPIX Original Documentary Airs Wednesday, July 9, at 10:00pm ET

 

New York, NY JULY 7, 2014 – Following a July 2 decision by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) not to re-open its investigation into the 1996 crash of TWA Flight 800, premium entertainment network EPIX announced today that it will air an encore presentation of TWA FLIGHT 800, its thought-provoking original documentary about the ill-fated, Paris-bound flight on Wednesday, July 9, at 10:00pm ET.  In addition to presenting the documentary on the EPIX Network, TWA FLIGHT 800 is also available on On Demand and on the EPIX App, which can be downloaded in the Apple Store and Google Play.

TWA FLIGHT 800 includes commentary from six former members of the official crash investigation who break their silence to refute the officially proposed cause of the jetliner’s demise and reveal how the investigation was systematically undermined.  The 90-minute documentary was written, directed and produced by Emmy® Award-winning journalist Kristina Borjesson.
