Description

Documenting the high profile major league doping scandal that rocked American baseball, director and co-producer Billy Corben takes a look at the unbelievable twists and turns of this multi-million pound story which began in the 2000s. Interviewees are Anthony Bosch, a main player in the story and specialist in performance enhancing drugs, disgruntled client Porter Fischer who eventually brought his story to the newspapers and other key players in a story that is truly stranger than fiction. Co-produced by Alfred Spellman.

“A very entertaining film, stuffed with colorful idiots and serves-you-right twists.” –John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter

“What might result if the Monty Python troupe were given carte blanche to produce an investigative report for “60 Minutes.” –Joe Leydon, Variety

“More entertaining than a dozen Major League Baseball games stacked on top of one another” –Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail

“It’s a cinematic home run.” –Christopher Llewellyn Reed, Hammer to Nail
