ESPN will begin showing full-length theatrical documentaries on Tuesday nights. According to Variety, the move is part of the ESPN Films initiative. Things kicked off in March with Black Magic, which aired on ESPN2.
Other films set to air are: Hellfighters, which looks at Harlem's only high school football team. The Streak, which chronicles the 451 consecutive wins by the Brandon High School wrestling team in Tampa, Florida. Bud Greenspan: Heart of the Games, which profiles the man who's best known for his Olympic profiles. And lastly, The Zen of Bobby V, which looks at former Major League baseball manager Bobby Valentine, who's now managing in Japan.
Vice President of ESPN Joan Lynch stated, "Our spring slate typifies the diversity of subject matter we seek to explore with ESPN Films and delivers on our promise of providing fans with the high quality creative content."
