Muhammad Ali four part docu-series will premiere in September on PBS
Los Angeles- PBS will be delivering a four part docu-series on iconic boxer and activist Muhammad Ali in September.
The docu-series will go into descriptive detail about the life of Ali. The good, the bad, and how Ali used his platform to talk about race injustice, as well as his faith. The docu-series has been in the works for over six years and viewers will get a feel of the man outside of one of the greatest boxers in boxing history.
“Muhammad Ali is a national icon whose life and legacy are woven into the fabric of American history,” said Sylvia Bugg, Chief Programming Executive and General Manager, General Audience Programming at PBS. “PBS is committed to sharing stories that deepen understanding and reflect a diversity of perspectives, and we’re thrilled to bring this extraordinary biopic to our audiences this fall.”
“Muhammad Ali remains one of the most iconic figures in American history. He has been studied and modeled and quoted extensively, and his life’s story is central to understanding the modern Black athlete and this period of activism and social change that The Undefeated has been privileged to chronicle,” said Raina Kelley, Vice President and Editor-in-Chief of ESPN’s The Undefeated. “We are proud to collaborate with PBS and Ken Burns to host this exciting conversation series on the meaning of Ali and his lasting legacy.”
The docu-series will be streamed on PBS platforms.
