Untold – Malice at the Palace – Netflix
We watch them. We cheer them. We celebrate them. In the sports arena, there are plenty of stories that fans need to know more about, but the players themselves reluctantly wanted to tell to the world. With Netflix’s Untold documentary series, it is a docuseries that uncovers five different sports stories from the perspectives of the athletes we praise and worship.
Here’s the official of Untold:
From the creators of Wild Wild Country, comes a five-part docuseries event that brings fresh eyes to epic tales from the wide world of sports. From tennis to boxing to basketball, these stories aren’t the ones you’ve heard before, even if you think you have. Premiering weekly, each film kicks off at a pivotal moment—the big fight, the Olympics, the playoffs—and then delve deep into what happened beyond the headlines, as told by those who lived it, to reveal the grit, resilience, heartbreak, triumph, violence, comedy, and pathos beneath the sweat.
Whether it’s the famous “Malice at the Palace” Pacers-Pistons brawl finally being unraveled by those who were on the inside, Olympian Caitlyn Jenner reflecting on her journey to winning gold, boxer Christy Martin in the fight of her life outside the ring, professional tennis player Mardy Fish opening up about his struggles with mental health, or a misfit band of hockey players known as the Trashers taking orders from the teenage son of an alleged mob boss, Untold gets to the heart of the passion and single-mindedness it takes to be a champion and the ways in which the triumphs can be undone off the field.
The series directors include Chapman Way, Maclain Way, Floyd Russ, Laura Brownson, and Crystal Moselle.
The five episodes of the Untold series stream weekly on Tuesday beginning August 10 on Netflix.
