Published August 29, 2014
GETTING HANDS-ON: CABLEFAX DAILY noted Tennis Channel is "airing a televised biography of Arthur Ashe" at the conclusion of its U.S. Open coverage Sunday at 11:00pm ET as part of its "Signature Series." Tennis Channel Chair & CEO Ken Solomon said, "This project was extremely personal for me and began with my discussions with [Ashe's widow] Jeanne Ashe quite some time ago." Solomon said while he has been "closely involved with many of our originals," this was "by far the most hands-on for me in working" with Tennis Channel VP/Original Programming Laura Hockridge and producer/director Nitin Varma (CABLEFAX DAILY, 8/29 issue).
