ESPN rolled out a significant lineup of new programming at its Tuesday upfront presentation, including new ESPN programs “Dan Le Batard Is Highly Questionable” and “Numbers Don’t Lie.”
“Batard” is a 30-minute weekday afternoon show (4 p.m. ET) featuring the Miami Herald sportswriter and TV personality, while “Numbers,” taking the lead-in spot before “Batard” at 3:30 p.m., will use stats to put the latest sports stories in historical perspective.
Also on tap is “HERoics,” a series of short films about women in soccer that will premiere on ESPN and will be part of ABC’s coverage leading up to the Women’s World Cup.
ESPN Films has a number of documentaries on the way, including “Catching Hell–The Steve Bartman Story,” “Renee–Renee Richard’s Story” and “Play On,” about Johann Olav Koss.
The network also announced that “NFL Live” expands to one hour in the fall.
