NBC vs. ESPN: Dueling Nancy Kerrigan-Tonya Harding Documentaries

Jul 29, 2013  •  Post A Comment

NBC is working on a documentary about figure skating rivals Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding, just days after ESPN said it plans its own documentary about the pair, reports The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed.

ESPN’s "30 for 30" is working on a look at the infamous attack before the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics, when Harding had Kerrigan clubbed in the knee during the runup to the competition.

NBC, however, has secured an exclusive interview with the press-shy Kerrigan, something the ESPN project did not, the story notes. The NBC project will be narrated by sportscaster Mary Carillo, and will air in prime time around the time the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, are broadcast.

While both Kerrigan and Harding will be interviewed, it’s unlikely that the pair will appear together on camera, the story notes.

ESPN will air its documentary, which will include interviews with Harding and several people close to Kerrigan, in November.
