AMERICAN HEROES CHANNEL COMMEMORATES THE 75TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ATTACK ON PEARL HARBOR WITH PREMIERE OF "PEARL HARBOR: THE HEROES WHO FOUGHT BACK"

-- Hour-Long Special Premieres Wednesday, December 7 at 10/9c on AHC--

(Silver Spring, Md.) - December 7, 2016 marks the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor, one of the largest attacks on U.S. soil in our nation's history, and a day which changed the world forever. To commemorate this infamous day, American Heroes Channel (AHC) presents the US premiere of the all-new special, PEARL HARBOR: THE HEROES WHO FOUGHT BACK on Wednesday, December 7 at 10/9c. From rescuing their comrades to returning fire on the Japanese, these are the true stories of those that sacrificed and fought back for our country - from sailors to airmen to everyday civilians - all extraordinary heroes who rose above and beyond the call of duty on that fateful day.

PEARL HARBOR: THE HEROES WHO FOUGHT BACK features interviews with numerous experts, historians and authors, who share the dramatic, lesser-known stories of some of Pearl Harbor's greatest heroes, including:

· John Charles "JC" England , a 20-year-old radio man who made four rescue trips below deck of the capsizing USS Oklahoma to save his fellow sailors;

· Phillip Rasmussen, an Army Air Corps lieutenant who raced in his pajamas to find a working airplane and successfully led a counter-aerial attack on the Japanese, earning the nickname, "the pajama pilot";

· Doris Miller, an African-American messman in the U.S. Navy who refused to abandon the USS West Virginia, instead manning an anti-aircraft machine gun to return fire to the enemy;

· Julio De Castro, a leading caulker and ship builder who led a team to rescue a total of 32 men who were trapped below deck of the sinking USS Oklahoma;

· Donald Kirby Ross, the first man to receive the Medal of Honor during World War II for his remarkable role in saving the USS Nevada, a pivotal ship that played a large role in the success of D-Day.

On the days leading up to the anniversary, AHC will feature some of the network's most fascinating Pearl Harbor programming nightly, with episodes of the network's hit series CODES AND CONSPIRACIES, as well as the specials MYTHS OF PEARL HABOR and PEARL HARBOR DECLASSIFIED. AHC will also air a special presentation of the Academy Award-winning feature film FROM HERE TO ETERNITY, which follows the lives and loves of three U.S. Army soldiers stationed on Hawaii in the months leading up to the attack on Pearl Harbor on Wednesday, December 5 at 8/7c.

As part of the anniversary commemoration, AHC is also partnering with Nine Line Apparel to honor our nation's heroes with a limited edition Pearl Harbor anniversary t-shirt, available for purchase from Friday, December 2 through Friday, December 16 at NineLineApparel.com.

PEARL HARBOR: THE HEROES WHO FOUGHT BACK is produced for American Heroes Channel by 360 Production, with Ailsa Orr as executive producer. For American Heroes Channel, Max Culhane is executive producer, Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, Kevin Bennett is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is Group President of American Heroes Channel, Investigation Discovery and Destination America.
