ESPN scores documentary trio

Maysles, Levinson, Klores join Lee, Tollin

ESPN Films has added Albert Maysles, Barry Levinson and Dan Klores to the list of filmmakers shooting short sports pics for its “30 for 30” documentary project.

The initiative, which is tied to ESPN’s 30th anniversary, involves the creation of 30 hourlong sports docus that will run on the cabler starting in October. Other filmmakers contributing to the project include Spike Lee, Barbara Kopple and Mike Tollin.

Maysles will contribute “Muhammad and Larry,” which will look at the 1980 bout between the very-much-past-his-prime Muhammad Ali and his former sparring partner, Larry Holmes. Klores will kick in “King of the New York Streets,” which will showcase former NBA sharpshooter Reggie Miller’s startling, trash-talk-fueled destruction of the Knicks in the 1995 playoffs.

Baltimore-born Levinson will explore how NFL owner Robert Irsay secretly spirited the Colts out of his heartbroken hometown in 1984, in “And the Band Marched On: The Colts Sneak Out of Baltimore.”
