THE RUNNER-UP (ESQUIRE NETWORK)
A behind-the-scenes 4 part limited documentary series about the failed congressional bid of perennial runner-up Clay Aiken. Aiken, a gay Democrat and single dad, ran against incumbent Congresswoman Renee Ellmers in the predominantly Republican North Carolina 2nd District. Via strategy meetings, debate prep, town halls, bus tours and door-to-door canvassing, the docuseries will provide an intimate look at the hope of victory and, ultimately, the disappointment of defeat.
30 for 30: THE DUKE LACROSSE CASE (ESPN)
A documentary film for ESPN's award-winning 30 for 30 strand about the 2006 Duke Lacrosse Case. Lightbox's theatrical-length film promises to clear away the myths and the misunderstandings which still surround one of the most widely-publicized sports stories in recent memory. How do those involved feel today about the events which roiled Duke University in the spring and summer of 2006? It's finally time to tell their story.
Director: Marina Zenovich.
30 for 30: BALTIMORE BOYS (ESPN)
A documentary on legendary Coach Bob Wade and arguably the greatest high school basketball team ever: the 1981-83 Dunbar Poets. The team achieved a perfect 60-0 record over those two seasons and produced four NBA players in David Wingate, Reggie Williams, Boston Celtic great Reggie Lewis, and a 5’3” dynamo named Tyrone ‘Muggsy’ Bogues.
This documentary is more than a basketball story, it's a look back through the prism of basketball at the embattled history of Baltimore -- from its war on drugs and the constant pressure of inner city violence, to its failing public school and health system, to the loss of its professional sports teams. Most of all, it's a tribute to a special group of unheralded boys and their 'brick tough' coach who became champions and offered hope to so many suffering through socio-economic depression.
Director: Sheldon Candis.
