30 for 30 Documentary "Mike and the Mad Dog" Airs July 13 on ESPN

ESPN Films' next documentary in its award-winning 30 for 30 series, "Mike and the Mad Dog," will premiere Thursday, July 13, at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN.

Even though Francesa and Russo both brought Long Island accents and encyclopedic sports knowledge to the microphone, they were distinctly different personalities who often clashed on and off the air. This chemistry resulted in many memorable moments and when all was said and done, the duo had changed sports radio forever. In this 30 for 30 documentary, director Daniel H. Forer tells the story of Francesa and Russo's success through in-depth interviews, archival tapes and a chorus of colleagues and fans in an effort to capture what made "Mike and the Mad Dog" so compelling.

Advance press screeners available upon request. Additional information, including film clips and director statements and bios, will be available on the 30 for 30 website espn.com/30for30. Follow 30 for 30 on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and join the conversation with hashtag #MikeAndTheMadDog.
