ESPN's highly anticpated documentary series is back, as the new slate of films premieres tonight with what should be an incredible look into the lives of athletes who went from having everything to nothing. As our own Andy More wrote, "(Broke) will take on a subject that has been discussed a lot in recent years—why former athletes go broke so often—but instead of just looking at one case, like a Sports Illustrated "Where Are They Now" profile, this promises to look at the overall issue. This hasn't been done enough."
To say that we're collectively amped for these weekly showings would be a bigger understatement than saying the XFL was "ehh, kind of awesome." Check out our detailed lineup preview here, and be sure not to wet yourself. Also, be sure not to become a professional athlete, get crazy rich, then drop $6,000 at a TGI Fridays.
"Broke" will air at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT. Not to be left out, Mountain Time gets this at 6.
