ESPN’s E: 60 returns with a whole new season tonight.
ESPN kicks off its Fall 2014 season of E: 60 tonight beginning at 8pm ET. Tonight’s season premiere presents two in-depth feature that come from the NFL. The first of the pair focuses on Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles and the second on the Seattle Seahawks’ polarizing cornerback Richard Sherman.
On the heels of the Ray Rice case, E: 60’s Jeffri Chadiha sits down with Jamaal Charles and discusses the murder of his wife’s cousin Kasandra Perkins. Perkins was murdered by her husband Jovan Belcher, who was also a teammate to Charles. Belcher turned the gun on himself after killing his wife in December of 2012. It is now believed that Belcher’s actions may have been the result of CTE or Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy. Charles discusses the terrible tragedy as well as his own tough childhood, growing up as part of a large family and more in that interview.
In the second of the night’s premiere features, Kenny Mayne talked with Richard Sherman. The outspoken Seattle Seahawks cornerback has made headlines since the buildup to last season’s Super Bowl. But as Kenny Mayne reveals, there is a whole other side to Sherman that few if any know of. Mayne reveals in his talk with Sherman that he [Sherman] demands success of himself not just on the gridiron but off the field, too. Sherman reveals in his interview with Mayne that much of his drive for excellence goes back to his younger days growing up in Compton, California. He also discusses how his days playing at Stanford played a role in his development, too. It is an intimate portrait of a man much deeper than the one most people know of.
Along with the interviews with Sherman and Charles, there is also a feature on “Morganna, The Kissing Bandit.” The famed figure rose to fame in the 1970s and 80s, well before the rise of Youtube and viral videos as she would run out onto the field at MLB games, kissing players. She disappeared suddenly in the 90s. Now fifteen years after she disappeared, “Morganna, The Kissing Bandit” has re-emerged. She sat down with E: 60’s Wright Thompson to discuss her reputation and how it was a troubled personal life that led her to become the famed figure.
The figures scheduled to appear on tonight’s season premiere of ESPN’s E: 60 are but a handful of the names set to come on the network’s hit show this season. Also expected to appear this season are: Detroit Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer, NFL superstar Gerald McCoy, famed pitcher Randy Johnson, Dallas Cowboys’ tight end Jason Witten, and New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. The complete schedule for this season is noted below.
