NBC Sports Launches Documentary-Film Unit

NBC Sports is taking on whole new kind of game – the growing popularity of documentary programming. For years, producers at NBC’s dedicated Olympics unit have produced hours of documentary-style features to accompany its parent company’s mammoth coverage of that event. Now, with the debut of a new unit, NBC Sports Films, NBC Sports wants to take that type of programming and play it across everything from the sports-focused NBCSN cable network to its digital properties.
