One night in Vegas: "Part documentary, part graphic novel, this program explores the remarkable friendship between boxing legend Mike Tyson and one of hip-hop's greatest rappers, Tupac Shakur, culminating in the infamous night when Tupac was brutally killed."--Container.
Unmatched: "No individual sports rivalry can boast the same intensity and impact as that of Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova. But even more remarkable is what happened off the court, where they formed a strong and lasting friendship, bonding them to this day."--Container.
