This spring, Public Media Distribution and Smithsonian Channel will partner to release the first season of a new program for sports lovers everywhere.
Sports Detectives: Season 1 will be released Tuesday, April 4 in stores and online. The program follows Kevin Barrows–former FBI agent, private investigator and security consultant–as he and CBS Sports Network personality Lauren Gardner as the pair hunt for key sports artifacts that have either been lost or claim to have been found.
The duo makes its way across the country in its hunt and learn vital stories from different sports’ histories in the process. One of those stories is the real story behind the Kentucky Derby’s War Admiral Trophy. Another involves the alleged disappearance of Kirk Gibson’s walk-off home run ball from the 1988 World Series. The whereabouts of the “Immaculate Reception” football is investigated in this series, too among so many other stories.
Sports Detectives spans 300 minutes on two discs. It will retail for MSRP of $29.99. It can be pre-ordered online now via PBS’ online store. More information on this and other titles from Smithsonian Channel is available online now at:
