Summary
  • Without Bias: More than two decades after his tragic cocaine overdose, the late Len Bias still leaves more questions than answers. When Bias dropped dead two days after the 1986 NBA Draft, he forever altered our perception of casual drug use and became the tipping point of America's drug crisis in the mid-80's ... In the most ambitious, comprehensive and uncompromising account of Bias' life and death ever captured on film, up-and-coming director Kirk Fraser utilizes dozens of interviews with Bias' closest teammates, friends and family in an effort to determine exactly what happened on that fateful night
  • The legend of Jimmy the Greek: In the early '80s, The NFL Today was one of the preeminent sports programs on television. It was a perfect combination of reporting, analysis, predictions, humor, and talent. But there was no personality on the show more popular that Jimmy 'The Greek' Snyder. Born in Steubenville, Ohio, to Greek immigrants, Jimmy overcame childhood tragedy, moved to Las Vegas, and eventually became the biggest name in the world of sports handicapping
  • Muhammad and Larry: Through the poetic lens of visionary filmmaker Albert Maysles, Muhammad and Larry explores the unique and poignant relationship between two great boxers and two remarkable men who were more than just competitors. They were once teacher and student, and remain close friends. Combines one-of-a-kind, never-before-seen archival footage with newly-produced reflective conversations with boxing experts, luminaries, and those who were at the fight. Maysles intimately documented both Muhammad Ali and Larry Holmes, from sparring matches to private moments at home, as they prepared for their upcoming fight in 1980. Muhammad and Larry takes a closer look at the connection that evolved, inside and out of the ring, between these two amazing athletes. Features Muhammad Ali, Larry Holmes, Angelo Dundee (Ali's trainer), Dr. Ferdie Pacheco (Ali's fight doctor, 1962-1977), Wali Muhammad (Ali's assistant trainer/security, 1965-1982), Tim Witherspoon (Ali's sparring partner), Vic Ziegel (sports columnist), etc
