Documentary on Fantasy Football to Air

New, comment

Passing along the word:


Documentary Channel® (DOC) will present the exclusive U.S. television premiere of director Hunter Weeks’ documentary "10 Yards: Fantasy Football" on Friday, Aug. 27 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT, which chronicles the widely popular craze of fantasy football in American society.
 
"10 Yards: Fantasy Football" hails from award-winning filmmakers, Weeks and Josh Caldwell (10 MPH, 2007), who created this hilarious, offbeat and all-encompassing portrayal of fantasy football.  "10 Yards" captures the phenomenon of fantasy football with specific focus on wacked-out j.fred’s INTERGALACTIC CHAMPIONSHIP League, where the top prize is a box of Twinkies®.  As the season progresses, filmmakers Weeks and Caldwell (both members of j.fred’s league) travel the country interviewing a variety of diverse fantasy football leagues, NFL players, commentators, and the guys who started it all in 1963.  From all women’s tackle football to Mexican mariachi bands, viewers need to get ready for some of the best camaraderie ever in this 90-minute fantasyland.
 
DOC is primarily available through satellite television services DISH Network (Channel 197) and DIRECTV (Channel 267).

I'd be interested if I had the Documentary Channel. I have a pretty expansive television package, and I've never even heard of that network.
