ESPN Shooting A Fab Five Documentary?

ESPN has been running a documentary series this year called 30 for 30, and it has received quite a bit of praise. The documentaries in the series have been very entertaining, and overall the series is one of the best things ESPN has done in years. It is only set to run until the end of the year, but many have speculated that ESPN could keep it going since people have responded so positively to it.


It's not clear if this is related to the 30 for 30 series at all, but there is a blurb in a Free Press article that mentions ESPN is doing a documentary on the Fab Five. According to the blurb, the documentary is "slated for March," which makes sense timing-wise since it would be right around the time the NCAA tournament is starting. When people have suggested possible ideas for future 30 for 30 documentaries, the Fab Five has been mentioned many times, as there is the intrigue of their impact on college basketball, as well as the scandal that followed years later.


Again, it's not clear if this reported documentary is in any way related to the 30 for 30 series, but perhaps it's part of a future documentary series on ESPN. Whatever the case, if it's anything like the 30 for 30 documentaries, it will be worth a watch, especially for Michigan fans.
