TLC Tells Story of "Hero of the Hudson" in BRACE FOR IMPACT

One-hour documentary, narrated by Harrison Ford, premieres January 10, 2010

Los Angeles, CA � December 9, 2009 � TLC today announced that the highly anticipated documentary film BRACE FOR IMPACT, about the remarkable landing of US Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River by Captain Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger, III, will premiere January 10, 2010 at 9:00 PM ET/PT. Celebrated actor � and avid pilot � Harrison Ford, narrates.

Produced by Daniel H. Birman Productions Inc., BRACE FOR IMPACT features interviews with Captain Sullenberger, passengers, air traffic controllers and first responders who assisted the landing. Stunning graphics, combined with compelling first-person accounts, create a 360-degree perspective of that fateful event, which gripped global attention the afternoon of January 15, 2009.

"I'm honored and gratified by the attention I've received as a result of this event. On January 15, we had a remarkably good day, and I'm proud that my crew and I were up to the task," said Captain Sullenberger. "I am sure that this documentary will convey the ongoing power of this story and its ability to touch and inspire people around the world."

The story's nerve center is Captain Sullenberger, whose heroic actions during the incident enabled him and his crew to save the lives of the 155 people on board that flight. Giving the audience an insider's view to the path he took that day, Sully will be reunited with the actual plane he landed, and will � for the first time � fly the actual route of 1549 and explain what happened and how he needed to make extreme choices while navigating a crippled aircraft over Manhattan.

"BRACE FOR IMPACT not only celebrates Sully, but honors everyone involved in making this event, and its positive outcome, so unforgettable," explains Eileen O'Neill, President & GM, TLC. "With the aid of personal stories and amazing CGI, viewers will be taken through the entire, incredible journey."

"TLC's audience is in for a fantastic ride, right in the pilot's seat with Sully, capturing his story in gripping detail, says Birman. "The unprecedented access and participation of agencies and individuals � including in-the-moment accounts from air traffic controllers, passengers, and boat captains � makes an extraordinary hour of television."

The one-hour documentary BRACE FOR IMPACT airs in high definition and is produced for TLC by Daniel H. Birman Productions Inc and executive produced by Daniel Birman.
