Showtime has taken the wraps off details about a new program, premiering this month, that examines the 2003 murder of Baylor University basketball player Patrick Dennehy.
The program is “Disgraced,” which premieres Friday, March 31, on Showtime.
“The revealing documentary chronicles the 2003 murder of Baylor University men’s basketball star Patrick Dennehy, to which fellow teammate and friend Carlton Dotson pled guilty in the only known instance in the history of the NCAA where one student-athlete was convicted of murdering another,” Showtime says in a press release. “Through first-hand accounts from students, investigators, family and friends, ‘Disgraced’ calls into question the plea and conviction of Dotson.”
The announcement adds: “The film also includes exclusive and revealing interviews with former head coach Dave Bliss, who directly addresses the attempted cover-up and secretly recorded statements he made in 2003 that implicated him in NCAA rule violations. The violations, revealed in part by whistle blower and then assistant coach Abar Rouse, ultimately led to Bliss’ resignation and a partial ban on NCAA play for the Baylor Bears basketball team.”
Here’s a trailer for the project, released today by Showtime …
