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.
