WASHINGTON -- Ross Greenburg has made a career out of taking hours of footage and turning it into award-winning television programming. His next challenge will be to re-invent what he already has done to make it new and compelling for a broader audience.
Greenburg, a 52-time Emmy Award winner formerly of HBO Sports who has partnered with the NHL on three previous all-access documentary series, will be the lead producer on the League's latest behind-the-scenes endeavor, this time with premium TV network Epix.
Epix and the NHL announced a partnership to produce and distribute a two-part, eight-episode, original all-access series debuting in December during a press conference Tuesday at Nationals Park, the home of the 2015 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic.
Epix is available in 54 million homes and on 450 digital devices, creating a greater opportunity for distribution than the NHL has had in any of its previous all-access endeavors. Sportsnet will air the series in Canada.
