If you’re a basketball fan, on March 10 at 9:00 p.m. EST you might want to be in front of a TV or at least have your DVR set to record.
HBO is set to release “Women of Troy,” a documentary that will explore the USC women’s basketball dynasty of the 1980s that was led by Cheryl Miller. The film will feature Miller, Cynthia Cooper, Paula and Pam McGee, Juliette Robinson, Rhonda Windham and USC head coach Linda Sharp, the foundation that forever changed women’s basketball, as they won two national titles and were the first women’s collegiate team to visit the White House.
“These women were trailblazers whose talent and charisma created new possibilities for women in basketball and in countless other pursuits,” said Alison Ellwood, the film’s director. “Cheryl Miller, Cynthia Cooper and their teammates left the game of the past behind and created the game we know and love today.”
The documentary is executive produced by Bill Simmons, Peter Nelson, and Rick Bernstein. The producers are Gary Cohen, Matt McDonald, and Branson Wright. And the film was directed by Ellwood and edited by Ross Hockrow.
