BOSTON, MA - Boston Bruins President Cam Neely announced today, September 10, that Season Two of the Black & Gold’s all-access television series “Behind the B” presented by Alex and Ani, will debut on Monday, September 15 at 8:00 p.m. on NESN with a 9:00 p.m. encore. A total of 13 episodes of “Behind the B” are slated to air during the 2014-15 season, beginning with the special hour-long season debut on September 15.
The Bruins have partnered with Charlie Moore and Mad Fish Productions to produce the show and will again be narrated by actor and Worcester, MA native Denis Leary.
For the second straight year, the Bruins have granted “Behind the B” cameras unprecedented access into the team’s locker room, executive boardroom, and player’s homes that will give fans a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of the organization throughout the duration of the 2014-15 campaign.
The hour-long premiere episode documents the team's entire offseason, beginning with the player meetings after the team's disappointing second round playoff exit, continuing through the Draft, Development Camp and the informal practices that began in September. The show also visits two Bruins blueliners in their hometowns on opposite coasts of the country and documents the contract signing of one of the team's top players.
Other exclusive “Behind the B” related content will be available on BostonBruins.com and the Boston Bruins Digital Entertainment Network (Bruins DEN) throughout the season.
Last season, 15 episodes of “Behind the B” aired, including two in the postseason. The show was nominated for a New England Emmy Award for the Best Sports Series and the introduction won a New England Emmy Award in the Musical Composition and Arrangement category.
