Spike Lee will direct a multi-part documentary for ESPN on Colin Kaepernick that features extensive interviews with the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback and access to his personal archive.

ESPN Films announced Tuesday that Lee would weave never-before-seen footage from Kaepernick's archive to provide "a full, first-person account of his journey."
Kaepernick last played pro football in 2016, the same year he started kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial injustice. Although the NFL has encouraged teams to look at Kaepernick, he has yet to receive another pro contract.

A new Netflix drama will tell the life story of Colin Kaepernick, the former NFL quarterback who sparked a national debate when he protested against racial injustice by kneeling as the U.S. national anthem played during a game.

No title or release date for the docu-series was announced.

Lee directed the 2009 film, "Kobe Doin' Work," on Lakers great Kobe Bryant. That film examined Bryant's work ethic and basketball prowess through a single Lakers game against the San Antonio Spurs.

I don’t know man, pti is good. Some of the 30 for 30s are good. I think they need to bring back the strong man competition reruns.
PTI is one small step above Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe and their scripted arguments over things they know nothing about. I'll give you some of the 30 for 30s, but a lot of them are lame. Strong Man Competitions are actual competitions, so they qualify as games.
