“We’ll Meet Again” Reunites People in New Series on NET

LINCOLN, Neb. (Jan. 18, 2018) – Journalist and former NBC anchor Ann Curry brings together people whose lives intersected at pivotal moments in history in the new PBS television series “We’ll Meet Again.” It airs at 7 p.m. CT, Tuesdays, Jan. 23-Feb. 27 on NET.

Explore some of history’s most dramatic events through the personal stories of those who experienced them. The new series reveals the powerful bonds forged among people who now, against the odds, have the chance to reunite with someone who transformed their life.

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 and war and immigration documents, and combing archives to reunite those separated by time and distance
