ESPN 30 for 30 Premiere: "Broke"
Courtesy ESPN Films
Many professional athletes make millions of dollars, but many lose it in a heartbeat. How is this possible? Why does this happen? Along with producer Alfred Spellman, Billy Corben directs his latest film Broke- which I had the opportunity to cover at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier in April- that attempts to answer these questions. Talking heads of current and former athletes narrate this story, providing anecdotal commentary and cautionary tales on their liquid state of compensation.
To hear from the director, Billy Corben, New York Jet Bart Scott, and Vice President and Executive Producer for ESPN Films, Connor Schell, check out the audio below, put together back in April after the red carpet premiere.
