The show that pulls back the curtain and gives fans a behind the scenes look at their favorite team in the State of Hockey is back for another season.
“Becoming Wild” presented by Toyota is back for 2012. Eighteen “Webisodes” will air on Wild.com – beginning this week – culminating in six “Becoming Wild” episodes on FOX Sports North, airing every Thursday from Sept. 6 through Oct. 11.
"Becoming Wild: Chapter Two" will give fans unprecedented access to current Wild players. The show will visit players at their homes around the globe, giving the State of Hockey a glimpse into the lives the players off the ice.
Webisodes, which last four to eight minutes each, will be available on Wild.com every Tuesday and Thursday at 3 p.m. through Sept. 6. Then, the six 30-minute episodes will air on FOX Sports North, every Thursday from Sept. 6 through Oct. 11. Times will be announced at a later date. For Webisode 1, click here.
Wild.com has a "Becoming Wild" homepage – a hub for fans to find all things related to the show, here.
Chapter Two will takes fans exclusively to the hometowns of current Wild players like Cal Clutterbuck, Dany Heatley, Kyle Brodziak and Tom Gilbert. It also follows the Wild’s hockey operations department with behind-the-scenes coverage of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft and training camp, as the Wild builds its roster for the 2012-13 season and beyond.
“We were excited with the results of “Becoming Wild” last season, thanks to the great support from our fans, as well as Toyota and FOX Sports North,” said John Maher, Wild Vice President of Brand Marketing. “The show is a must-see for Wild fans as it provides incredible access to our team as it prepares for the 2012-13 campaign.”
"Toyota and the Twin Cities Area Toyota Dealers have been long-time partners of the Minnesota Wild organization and proud to once again present Becoming Wild", said Kevin Fletcher General Manager for Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc.’s Chicago sales office.
