LEGENDARY STYLE: ESPN Films' "30 for 30 Shorts" series continued with the debut on Wednesday of "Untucked," a documentary directed by actor Danny Pudi of NBC's "Community." The film, which can be viewed on Grantland.com, focuses on the Marquette men's basketball team's uniform during the team's '77 NCAA Championship run (ESPN). TV producer Bill Lawrence said of ESPN's "30 for 30 Shorts" series, "The perception is that these are for sports fans. They are for everyone, and some of the best short documentaries I've ever seen" (ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, 3/21 issue).
