CRITIC'S CORNER: NFL, NHL AND NBA ALL HELP WITH MOVIES
Published March 8, 1995
A film production crew will use the Cleveland Browns training facility and Cleveland Stadium for a full-length feature movie called "End over End." The movie, scripted by actor Martin Mull, portrays the story of a star player's final NFL season. NFL Properties will assist in the script development, NFL player involvement, plus retail, sponsor and merchandising tie-ins. The movie is scheduled to be released this fall (NFL). NHL MOVIE ON CBC: "A front-line cast is ready to face off for 'Net Worth,' Canadian TV's first drama about pro hockey since 'He Shoots, He Scores,' which aired between 1986 and '88." The two-hour CBC movie is about the failed attempt by Ted Lindsay and four other NHL players, including Gordie Howe, to form an NHL players' union in the '50s. "Net Worth" is based on a non-fiction book of the same title by Allison Griffiths and David Cruise (TORONTO STAR, 3/8). AND THE NBA: TNT's "Inside the NBA" previewed "Forget Paris," in which Billy Crystal stars as an NBA referee. Player cameos include: Reggie Miller, Charles Barkley, David Robinson, John Starks and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (TNT, 3/3).
