PBS has announced a new six-part series called “We’ll Meet Again” produced by Blink Films in partnership with Ann Curry’s media venture and scheduled to premiere in winter 2018. The Exploring some of history’s most dramatic events from across the globe through the personal stories of those who experienced them, “We’ll Meet Again” brings together people whose lives intersected at pivotal moments. Executive produced and reported by Ann Curry, each episode reveals the powerful bonds forged among people who now, against the odds, have the opportunity to reunite with those who transformed their lives.
The logline: The tides of history can disrupt lives, throwing strangers together or tearing loved ones apart. “We’ll Meet Again” reveals these moving personal stories of hope, courage and love: from a Vietnam War baby desperate to find the American father she last saw 40 years ago to the military chaplain who helped a stranger through the trauma of 9/11, from a Japanese-American girl interned in 1942 who never forgot the classmate who helped her during her darkest hours to civil rights workers whose lives were forever changed by the deep relationships they formed in the 1960s South.
“We’ll Meet Again” takes viewers on a journey of hope, searching for clues in marriage records, war and immigration documents, and combing archives to reunite those now separated by time and distance.
