HBO Sports premieres our documentary WILD CARD: The Downfall Of a Radio Loudmouth on October 7, 2020 at 9pm. The film looks at the rise and fall of Craig Carton, the extraordinarily talented co-host of the renowned Boomer & Carton show on New York's WFAN. Craig Carton was one of the most dominant voices on morning radio in the country but resigned from the show in 2017 after being arrested by the FBI. He was subsequently convicted of securities fraud and conspiracy, shocking millions of fans by admitting to a secret gambling addiction. He was sentenced to 42 months. In a series of interviews before beginning his sentence, Carton talked candidly about his addiction and the millions of dollars he risked at the blackjack table. We also filmed revealing interviews with key people in his life including co-host Boomer Esiason and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

Fox Network screened our documentary Seaver on October 13. The film featured exclusive and moving footage of Tom and Nancy in their California home and in the vineyard that has been the center of Tom's life in recent years. It also included interviews with Hall of Famers Joe Morgan, Johnny Bench and Hank Aaron and featured Mets owner Fred Wilpon and Seaver's teammates Ron Swoboda, Jerry Koosman and Ron Darling. Seaver was particularly poignant following the news that Tom has retired from public life after being diagnosed with dementia. Narrated by lifelong Mets fan Ed Burns, our film is now being screened regularly on Fox Sports 1 following its premiere on the Fox network. Martin and Marie appeared on Sid Rosenberg's Sid Sports Sunday on WABC radio to discuss their film.
