The 8-part documentary series follows Brian “Boz” Bosworth across the country as he tours legendary college football stadiums featuring exclusive interviews with former players and coaches
Crackle Plus, a Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment (Nasdaq: CSSE) company and one of the largest operators of streaming advertising-supported video-on-demand (AVOD) networks, announced today the premiere of its original sports docu-series, Bucket List, launching on Monday, February 1.
Bucket List follows outspoken college football legend, Brian “The Boz” Bosworth, as he tours 8 of the best destinations in college football today, interviewing coaches, former star players and fans to determine why each stadium deserves a spot on every fan’s bucket list. Schools include his alma mater University of Oklahoma, reigning national champions University of Alabama, Texas A&M, University of Texas, Louisiana State University, Clemson, University of Georgia and Auburn University.
Each episode will feature exclusive interviews with some of college football’s greatest. In one episode Bosworth reflects on an iconic NFL moment he shared with Bo Jackson during a Monday Night Football game over 30 years ago. He also sits down with Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney, former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray, Texas’ Jamaal Charles, and current NFL stars AJ McCarron, D’Andre Swift, Tee Higgins, Christian Kirk, Dee Ford, Justin Jefferson, Sterling Shepard and more.
“Many never get to experience the greatness of the college football landscape,” said host Brian Bosworth. “There’s something to be said for the beauty of these stadiums and impressive programs, and Bucket List is an inside look at some of the best.”
“This docu-series will keep our sports-hungry viewers wildly entertained, especially now that the college football season is over, and will be fascinating even for viewers who aren’t sports fans,” said Philippe Guelton, president of Crackle Plus.
