"SPORTS ILLUSTRATED" PRESENTED BY LEXUS SET TO PREMIERE JULY 24, 9:00 P.M. ON NBC SPORTS NETWORK

Features include: the extraordinary development of Orioles Pitching prospect Dylan Bundy From Tom Verducci; Jon Wertheim Goes Inside Jackson's Gym -- the Ground Zero for future MMA Champions and Jack McCallum on the 1992 U.S. Olympic Dream Team scrimmage "The Greatest Game that Nobody Saw"

NEW YORK, NY (July 20, 2012) - The premiere episode of "Sports Illustrated" presented by Lexus is set for July 24 at 9:00 p.m. on NBC Sports Network. The following is a synopsis of the first show:

War and Peace in Jackson's Gym: The soul of one of America's fastest-rising sports can be found in a desert octagon where mysticism mingles with disciplined mayhem. Mike Winklejohn, a former kickboxing champion and Muay Thai champ, plays the heavy while Greg Jackson, the son of pacifists, embraces a less strident approach to teaching. Together, they have produced some of the MMA's biggest stars. Sports Illustrated Senior Writer Jon Wertheim has the story.

The Bundy Project: The development of prized Baltimore Orioles pitching prospect Dylan Bundy is quite extraordinary. He squats 500 lbs. throws a 100-mph fastball, drinks broccoli-and-barley smoothies... while under the watch of pitching guru Rick Peterson. Sports Illustrated Senior Writer Tom Verducci reports.

The Story of Alex Meyer: Training at historic Walden Pond, Meyer has overcome personal obstacles and the death of friend and former champion, Fran Crippen, to make the 10K open-water U.S. Men's Olympic team competing in the London Olympic Games. Sports Illustrated Writer-Reporter Sarah Kwak reports.

The Point After: The Greatest Game Nobody Saw: An impromptu scrimmage ahead of the Olympics pitted Michael Jordan's team against Magic Johnson's in a grudge match where agendas and ego were given their fullest expression. No journalist was closer to the Dream Team than Sports Illustrated's Jack McCallum, and he explores "The Greatest Game That Nobody Saw."

"Sports Illustrated" Presented by Lexus is, a monthly, hour-long sports magazine TV show produced by NBC Sports and Sports Illustrated. The show will deliver the magazine's DNA of award-winning storytelling through feature segments, original reporting and commentary from SI's trusted journalists. Emmy Award-winning Red Line Films has been tapped to produce the show.
