A new Showtime production takes on what the network calls the “biggest scandal in college basketball history.” The pay-cable network released a new clip today for the documentary “Disgraced,” which presents secret audio recordings from 2003 that “reveal former Baylor University men’s basketball coach Dave Bliss planning to create ‘reasonable doubt’ during investigation of major NCAA rule violations,” Showtime says.
“‘Disgraced’ is a comprehensive account of the murder of Baylor basketball star Patrick Dennehy and the ensuing attempted cover-up of NCAA rules violations that rocked the Baptist university in Waco, Texas,” Showtime says in today’s announcement.
