ESPN to Air Tiger Woods Documentary On Thanksgiving Weekend
Tiger Woods documentary overload?
The hour-long documentary, “Tiger Woods: America’s Son,” will air over Thanksgiving Weekend on November 29.
“Throughout this hour we hope that viewers see Tiger Woods in a new light and be challenged to think about what it is that makes him uniquely American. In many ways, Tiger’s story shows us that there is no single experience in America,” said Craig Lazarus, vice president of content and features for ESPN, in a press release.
The project is led by Sports Emmy Award winner Lauren Stowell.
It will air at 7 p.m. on ESPN and the ESPN App.
While the HBO documentary will be on Woods’ life, on and off the course, the ESPN documentary explore how Tiger’s win at the 1997 Masters influenced perceptions of him across racial and ethnic lines.
The documentary will also explore racial identity and the mean of Woods’ success in the United States, according to ESPN.
