Interview with THE TENTH INNING Filmmaker Ken Burns

June 7th, 2010

Last week, filmmaker Ken Burns sat down for an exclusive interview with THIRTEEN’s President, Neal Shapiro, to discuss the making of his upcoming film, The Tenth Inning.  The documentary picks up where the original Emmy Award-winning, nine-part documentary series Baseball left off.

Set to air in the fall of 2010, The Tenth Inning will follow the triumphs and trials of baseball from 1993 through 2008, including its growing popularity on a global scale, and the scandals surrounding performance-enhancing drugs.  The film is co-directed by Burns and Lynn Novick, and co-written and produced by Burns, Novick, and David McMahon.
