ESPN will debut the next installment in the Peabody and Emmy award-winning 30 for 30 series, “The Luckiest Guy in the World,” on June 6 and 13. Directed by Steve James (“Hoop Dreams,” “Abacus: Small Enough to Jail”), the four-part series tells the colorful story of a true sports original: iconic basketball Hall of Famer Bill Walton. His life is the stuff of legend: a high school basketball phenom and game-changing big man for the UCLA dynasty; an injury-plagued NBA lightning rod defined by championships and setbacks; a Grateful Dead devotee who remained true to himself, no matter the cost. The series, which premieres Tuesday June 6 at 8 p.m. ET (Episodes 1 & 2) and Tuesday, June 13 at 8 p.m. (Episodes 3 & 4), will be made available on ESPN+ immediately after its premiere, along with the rest of the 30 for 30 library.
