With the upcoming launch of the ACC Network, the ESPN-partner network should be rolling out programming that will be shown over the next few weeks, outside of the games that will be broadcast. Today, we got a peak at one show, and unsurprisingly, it has to do with Clemson football.
Football docu-series are huge right now. HBO really made the genre popular with Hard Knocks, but we’ve seen a number of other successful series, like Amazon’s All Or Nothing and Netflix’s Last Chance U.
The Big Ten and SEC Networks have had similar programming about their biggest schools. Now, ACC Network is launching a four-part series titled All In: The Clemson Football Family.
The ACC Network Clemson series will run four consecutive nights, from Sunday, Aug. 25 until Wednesday, Aug. 28.
It should provide a nice lead-up to the Tigers’ season opener on Aug. 29 against Georgia Tech.
ACC Network released a trailer for the series today:
More on the series, from ESPN:
Three days following the launch of ACC Network (ACCN), the new, 24/7 national platform launching on August 22, 2019, fans will have an opportunity to go “all in” with a behind-the-scenes look at Clemson football, a program that has won two of the last three College Football Playoff National Championships. All In: The Clemson Football Family will air Sunday, Aug. 25 – Wednesday, Aug. 28, in primetime on ACCN.
“We knew early on that we wanted to do something special with Clemson,” said Stacie McCollum, senior director of programming and acquisitions. “We wanted to showcase the people and culture behind the program’s success as they prepare to defend their national title. Access programming and storytelling will be hallmarks of this network, and the opportunity to feature the Tigers in our first series is a testament to that commitment. Anyone who loves college football will enjoy this series.”
Clemson vs. Georgia Tech will be the debut game for ACC Network. The network itself is set to launch on Aug. 22, and already has a number of big carriage agreements in place. That first week is going to be extremely Tiger-heavy.
