 A New 30 Episode Season Of 30 For 30 Is On Its Way

MR.CJMR.CJ Members Posts: 64,689 ✭✭✭✭✭
One brief tidbit from ESPN’s upfront presentation to advertisers this week that we haven’t mentioned yet are new plans for 30 for 30. Bristol announced plans for an entire new 30 for 30 season with 30 (!!!) new documentaries on the table for the illustrious series.


It’s an important announcement for ESPN in two regards. 1) 30 for 30 is on the short list of the very best things the network has done and more high quality documentaries on interesting topics is always a good thing. 2) It’s a sign that in a post-Simmons world, 30 for 30 and ESPN Films are still moving ahead and churning out more top notch documentaries.


While ESPN didn’t reveal the entire list of films, here’s the ones we do know will be a part of the new season:

– The early 90s Buffalo Bills who went to four straight Super Bowls and lost them all.

– Tyson-Holyfield

– Pete Carroll

– John Daly


The one on the early 90s Bills could have the potential to be one of the best 30 for 30s in history given the incomparable accomplishments and heartbreak of that team. The John Daly film could be golf’s answer to the Brian Bosworth film – given the highs and lows throughout his career that should be fascinating. Similarly, ESPN could spend an entire 30 for 30 on Fan Man, let alone the entirety of the Tyson-Holyfield rivalry. The only one I’m a bit skeptical on is Pete Carroll, unless there’s a serious window into his 9/11 truther stuff.


The exciting thing is that these four films just scratches the surface of the new 30 for 30 season. And in truth, the existence of a new season shows the real strength of the concept – there is a nearly unlimited supply of compelling stories within the world of sports to showcase on a much deeper and more meaningful level. ESPN should be able to lean on 30 for 30 and ESPN Films as a cornerstone of the network for quite some time.

    They need to do a 30 for 30 on Ohio. Everyone knows we 🤬 excellence, but 2015 has really been a heck of a sports year.

    They need to do one on the disappearance of former Bulls/Pistons player Bison Dele... would make a great story.

    Also story about former Nuggets player Mahamoud Abdul-Raouf being black mailed from the NBA for refusing to stand up for the U.S national anthem.

    @one_manshow you should read the article on his disappearance on SI.com. It was really good.
