Q&A with the writer of HBO’s 24/7 Hockey Series
It’s rare to find a show that can instantly create a connection with a broad audience, especially if it’s a show about hockey. But that has been the defining strength of HBO sports and its privileged access with their 24/7 Hockey series. It finishes its second season tonight, this year profiling the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers. The critically acclaimed program takes a unique look into the lives of NHL players and coaches for four weeks leading up to the Winter Classic, culminating at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. Its unprecedented coverage and ability to humanize athletes on the ice has captivated even the slightest of hockey fans and has rejuvenated the sport as it approaches midseason.
