On Freddie Roach: Trailer for the HBO Series by Director Peter Berg

Here's the trailer for the HBO series "On Freddie Roach," directed by Peter Berg:


We'll see. I'm still not exactly dying to see this, because I've been so massively overexposed to Freddie Roach in recent years, but if this is done well -- and the trailer is done very well -- then I'm certain the show will be very interesting. Hopefully it's more than "24/7: Freddie Roach," and I'm optimistic that it will be since Peter Berg is a legitimate director who didn't have to take this project if he didn't truly want to do it.

The series premiere airs on Friday, January 20, at 9:30 p.m. EST.

I'm guessing the film crews weren't still with Roach for his professional tests and setbacks late in the year with Manny Pacquiao controversially beating Juan Manuel Marquez, and Amir Khan controversially losing to Lamont Peterson. That's too bad. From a boxing standpoint, I'd be far more interested to see that than I am more celebration of Freddie's successes. Not that I have anything against his success, mind you, but I know that side very well. He and his fighters have been delivering for a long time now. There's more drama and intrigue to the other side at this point, at least for me.

I'm also hoping Berg was able to go deeper into who Roach really is beyond the sport, at least what there is of Roach beyond the sport.
