Showtime is unveiling a new sports documentary series, “All Access,” premiering June 13.
Skein will be largely centered, at least at the outset, on figures from boxing and mixed martial arts. The initial episode will focus on boxer Victor Ortiz, who has been preparing to fight Josesito Lopez in a Showtime-televised bout June 23, and will replace a “Fight Camp 360” program on the event.
The program will also air on sibling cabler CBS Sports Network, in addition to Showtime Extreme and Showtime on Demand.
“The tumultuous events of the last year of Victor’s career have been documented, but never before from an intimate, first-person perspective,” Showtime Sports exec veep and general manager Stephen Espinoza said. ” ‘All Access’ will reveal Victor Ortiz as a person, living in the real world with some of the same challenges that we all face in life, and some of the challenges reserved only for his profession.”
