Survivors, first-responders and performer Jason Aldean recall the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history through emotional interviews in an upcoming documentary series.
The four-part “11 Minutes” will premiere Sept. 27 on Paramount+ ahead of the fifth anniversary of the Route 91 Harvest festival in Las Vegas where a gunman killed dozens of people and wounded hundreds more on Oct. 1, 2017.
Monday’s release-date announcement describes the documentary as the first in-depth interview about the tragedy with Aldean, who was onstage when gunman Stephen Paddock began firing from a high-rise Mandalay Bay hotel room overlooking the outdoor festival.
“When I turned around, my bass player was just looking at me like a deer in the headlights. And my security guy was on stage at that point, telling me to get down, waving me off the stage,” Aldean said, according to Paramount.
A trailer released Monday includes multiple tearful testimonials from others who were there, while producers say the documentary includes never-before-seen footage.
The initial death toll was listed at 58 people, but was officially changed to 60 three years later to include women who died from complications from wounds in 2019 and 2020.
