ESPN's '30 for 30' franchise will live on
You may have missed the news amidst Bill Simmons' epic online chat with fans this week, but the "30 for 30" executive producer revealed that ESPN's sports documentary franchise will live on even after completing its original slate of films.
Simmons wrote, "We're spinning off the '30 for 30' series next year into something that will probably be called '30 for 30 Presents' or something like that... we're going to be putting out 4-5 sports docs per year on the level of the best '30 for 30' docs and getting the best filmmakers to do them. Same creative team is involved. We have some terrific ideas in the hopper. So even though the SMU doc will be the 30th one (right after the Heisman ceremony) don't think the spirit of the series is going away."
The Sports Guy also added that Alex Gibney's delayed Bartman documentary -- actually about scapegoats in sports, will air next spring on ESPN.
