Past the next couple editions of 30 for 30 announced and scheduled over the rest of this month, we’re a bit fuzzy on the subjects that will be featured in ESPN’s documentary series in the future. Details are scarce. And while details are also scarce on this project that recently began filming, we know the subject – wrestling legend Ric Flair.
Legacy Talent posted the following blurb about the upcoming 30 for 30 on Facebook, along with some pictures from an interview shoot with Flair.
We named this company Legacy Talent because it’s our mission to help preserve the legacies that our clients have worked a lifetime to build. Yesterday we took a huge step in documenting Ric Flair’s legacy by starting to shoot his 30 for 30 ESPN Film. We are honored to work with such a prestigious group on a project we are so passionate about!#Flair30for30 #ComingSoon
86 full-length 30 for 30 films have either aired or been scheduled (including the shelved Kevin Johnson/Sacramento Kings film), while 43 30 for 30 shorts have aired or been announced to date. A Flair 30 for 30 would be just the second one to deal with wrestling following one about the Von Erich family, though that one can’t be found anywhere on ESPN.com and isn’t listed on the Wikipedia list of 30 for 30 films.
There was no immediate word about whether or not the Flair film would be a full-length feature or if it would be a 30 for 30 Short, but there is plenty of material throughout Flair’s career to get the documentary to at least an hour. Hopefully, a Flair 30 for 30 won’t dance around some of the more controversial parts of his career and be truly comprehensive.
