Legacy Talent and Entertainment posted the following to Facebook today:
We named this company Legacy Talent because it's our mission to help preserve the legacies that our clients have worked a lifetime to build. Yesterday we took a huge step in documenting Ric Flair's legacy by starting to shoot his 30 for 30 ESPN Film. We are honored to work with such a prestigious group on a project we are so passionate about!
This wouldn't be the first time ESPN has ventured into the pro wrestling world with its 30 for 30 documentary series, having previously looked at the Von Erich family. This also comes at a time when ESPN and WWE are as cozy as ever, what with a weekly segment on Sportscenter and increased coverage of major pay-per-view (PPV) events.
If there's a legendary wrestler fit for such a project, it's "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair.
