It looks like the Bad Boys will be the subject of an ESPN retrospective.

ESPN spokesperson Jennifer J. Cingari confirmed that a “30 for 30” documentary on the notorious Pistons squads that won two world titles and battled for Eastern Conference supremacy in the late 1980s and early 90s is “in the works.”

“A ‘30 for 30’ on the Bad Boys is in the works, but we don't have an air date or a film summary yet,” she said in an e-mail to the Free Press today.

The news should be exciting to Pistons fans, who have been clamoring for a documentary on that era of Pistons basketball since ESPN started airing the documentaries in October 2009.

The award-winning series has featured looks at the career of two-sport athlete Bo Jackson, basketball Hall of Famer Michael Jordan’s brief flirtation with minor-league baseball and other notable sports stories since ESPN was formed in 1979, hence the “30 for 30” title.

The Pistons have been approached by producers, but the project is still in the planning stages.

Excellent, I love the 30 for 30 series. I could see this one becoming one of their best ones yet, maybe just as good as the Fab Five one. Also, hopefully they get Rodman on their for obvious reasons.

The Bad Boys are getting the '30 for 30' treatment later this month, and ESPN has released the first look at the documentary.

The tagline should catch any Detroit Pistons fan: "What if I told you, 'Sometimes, you gotta be bad to be good?"

'Bad Boys' premieres on ESPN on April 17 at 8 p.m.

Can't wait. The Bad Boys are one of the most underrated chamionship teams in history. They took down MJ, Bird and Magic in the toughest era ever. All the hard fouls and rough play was exciting and good for the game. Today, the game is a joke, every little foul is a technical.
