After batting around the idea to make a scripted drama series, ESPN has
decided to give it a try. Now the sports network just needs a show.
ESPN said Thursday that it will make a weekly one-hour drama, but it is undecided on
a show, producers and cast.
Whatever the project, ESPN will order 10 one-hour episodes and kick off with
a two-hour pilot to air Tuesday nights in 2003.
ESPN's first reality show, Beg, Borrow & Deal, debuts Sept.
