2014 Season Original Content

SEC Storied: The Stars are Aligned

What do Ashley Judd, Darius Rucker, James Carville and Governor Rick Perry have in common? Well, they live and die with the fortunes of their respective SEC schools. In The Stars Are Aligned, 14 famous figures—each representing a different college in the Southeastern Conference—spill their emotions and explain why they’ll never forget where they came from. Among the other celebrities featured are Charlie Daniels, Amy Robach, Jonathan Papelbon, Melissa Joan Hart, Emmitt Smith, Shepard Smith and Ralphie May.

 

SEC Storied: Bo, Barkley and The Big Hurt  

It started with the unheralded arrival of a wisecracking heavyweight basketball player named Charles Barkley - then came the recruitment of multi-sports legend Bo Jackson, a victory in itself since he might have gone to Alabama. When Frank Thomas wasn’t drafted by a Major League baseball team, he decided to cast his fate with Auburn … as a football player. Told through an unforgettable reunion of the famed trio at the 2013 Iron Bowl, here’s the real story of how these future Hall of Famers turned the orange and blue of Tiger athletics into gold.

 

SEC Storied: The Believer
The SEC is in Steve Spurrier’s blood. He grew up in Tennessee as a fan of the Volunteers. He won the Heisman Trophy as the quarterback for the University of Florida, and then came back to coach the Gators to a national championship. Now, he coaches the University of South Carolina, the team that produced the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Jadeveon Clowney. Co-executive produced by Kenny Chesney and Shaun Silva, The Believer reveals the essence of the most competitive man in the most competitive football conference in the nation.

 

SEC Storied: It’s Time
Premiering Thursday, Sept. 4, at 8 p.m. this film tells the story of Ole Miss Football Player Chucky Mullins, who was paralyzed following an in-game collision with Vanderbilt fullback Brad Gaines in 1989. Mullins inspired his teammates for the rest of that season and beyond, as the school established the Chucky Mullins Courage Award in his honor, which awards the recipient with the right to wear Mullins’ number 38 that season.
