TV Alert: Replay

I've seen and reviewed two fine documentaries by filmmaker Loren Mendell -- Bad Boys of Summer, a fascinating look at an all-convict baseball team at San Quentin State Prison, and Adjust Your Color: The Truth of Petey Greene, an amusing and admiring portrait of the Washington, D.C. talk-show host played by Don Cheadle in Talk to Me -- so I have high hopes for his contribution to the Replay series now in its second season on several sports-centric cable channels nationwide. Mendell's multi-part documentary focuses on the rivalry between two Detroit area high school hockey teams, and the 1999 match-up that ended in near-tragedy. You can view the teaser trailer above, and find out when and where it debuts this week in your area here
