The series begins with an intimate conversation between Rhoden and famed boxer and Olympic Gold Medalist Oscar De La Hoya. Viewers will learn first hand about De La Hoya’s inspirations, including how and why he built a new life for himself following his time in the ring. Upcoming Personal with Bill Rhoden subjects will be announced in the coming weeks.

Personal with Bill Rhoden will be one of a kind,” said Mark Greenberg, EPIX President and CEO. “We love sports and are devoted to raising the bar on sports programming through specials such as this, which allow us to bring our viewers even deeper into the lives and stories of our heroes.”

Personal with Bill Rhoden is co-executive produced by Seth G. Abraham and Tim Braine, and directed by Paul Fuentes. Abraham, who formerly headed up HBO Sports, Time Warner Sports and was the President of Madison Square Garden, founded Starship SA LLC in 2004. Braine is a multi-award winning producer of televised sports, documentaries and comedy for HBO. Fuentes has directed hundreds of national commercials and promos as well as written & directed original content for brands and corporations including HP, Sony®, HBO, Arm & Hammer®, Glad, Showtime, ESPN and CBS.

“I have wanted to create an interview program like this for 30 years,” said Abraham. “Bill Rhoden is one of the most insightful, inquisitive journalists covering sports today. Under his guidance you will see sports through a broader prism.”
