HBO Brings Back “Legendary Nights” in 2008
In 2003, HBO Sports introduced “Legendary Nights,” a 12-part documentary series showcasing 12 of the most memorable fights that have appeared on HBO.
The series notched a Sports Emmy for “Outstanding Edited Sports Series/Anthology.”
Ross Greenburg, president of HBO Sports, and Rick Bernstein, executive producer of HBO Sports, announced today that they will revisit the series next year.
In the 2008 programming year, HBO Sports will return with a fresh six-week installment of “Legendary Nights.” The six new shows will be hand-picked from the fight library of HBO, which is in its 35th year of televising the best in professional boxing.
