Michael Vick has agreed to let Bombo Sports & Entertainment do a documentary about his life. Bombo CEO Bob Potter said the 70- to 90-minute biopic on Vick, who served time in federal prison for his involvement in a dog-fighting ring, will not gloss over the unsavory details of Vick’s past.
“I am a dog owner, so this won’t be a sugar-coating, but it should be a good film about an athlete who is fantastically talented and really polarizing at the same time,” Potter told Sports Business Daily.
Potter hopes the documentary, which does not yet have a director, can be released in time for the 2011 NFL season and perhaps air on ESPN.
