CROSS-COUNTRY DOC: In Knoxville, Dan Fleser notes the film "Pat XO," about Tennessee women's basketball coach emeritus Pat Summitt, debuts tonight at 8:00pm ET as the second installment of the "Nine for IX" series. "Pat XO" co-Dirs Lisa Lax and Nancy Stern Winters "took a broad view of their subject, sending video cameras across the country to gather as many interviews as possible." They "relinquished some control over the production process in hopes of capturing more heartfelt, genuine moments." ESPN Films "Nine for IX" Exec Producer John Dahl said, "It's not going to have the polished look that you normally might see. But what it brings in return is revealing, personal, poignant moments and stories that you really haven't heard before" (KNOXNEWS.com, 7/7).
