ESPN reps have announced that "The Color Orange: The Condredge Holloway Story," which was produced by Kenny Chesney and Shaun Silva, will make its debut as part of the "SEC Storied" series at 10 p.m. (ET) Sunday, Jan. 13, on ESPNU.
According to the Jan. 12 missive shared with Examiner.com, the documentary originally aired on ESPN in February 2011. Subsequent airings are slated for Friday, Jan. 18, at 6 p.m. (ET) and Friday, Jan. 25, at 11 p.m. (ET).
Chesney wore Holloway's jersey number when he played high school football and idolized the University of Tennessee quarterback. In turn, the football-loving Chesney was thrilled to produce and narrate the documentary that spotlights the life and career of the first African-American starting quarterback in the Southeastern Conference.
The film was recognized by the The National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications, or NAMIC, with a nomination for its annual Vision Awards, which recognize original, multi-platform television programming that depicts the lives, spirit and contributions of people of color and best reflects the diversity of the global viewing audience.
ESPN Films launched the "Storied" documentary series last September as a way to present fans with an opportunity to explore the rich athletic history of the SEC. From extraordinary athletes and coaches to defining games and moments, "Storied" features topics from the SEC's recent and more distant past.
