ESPN will air a new documentary co-produced and narrated by BLUE CHAIR RECORDS/COLUMBIA NASHVILLE artist KENNY CHESNEY and SHAUN SILVA. The special will debut as part of the SEC “Storied” series, which explores the history of the SOUTHEASTERN CONFERENCE.
“THE COLOR ORANGE: THE CONDREDGE HOLLOWAY STORY” will take an in-depth look at CONDREDGE HOLLOWAY, who was the first AFRICAN-AMERICAN starting quarterback in the SEC. CHESNEY idolized HOLLOWAY and even wore his jersey number when playing football in high school.
The film has already received a nomination for THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR MULTI-ETHNICITY IN COMMUNICATIONS’ annual Vision Award. That award recognizes “original, multi-platform television programming that depicts the lives, spirit and contributions of people of color and best reflects the diversity of the global viewing audience.”
Watch “THE COLOR ORANGE: THE CONDREDGE HOLLOWAY STORY” on SUNDAY (1/13) at 10p (ET) on the ESPNU Network. Repeats will air on FRIDAY, JANUARY 18th at 6p (ET) and FRIDAY, JANUARY 25th at 11p (ET).
