Showtime to premiere ‘Disgraced’ sports doc

Showtime next month is scheduled to premiere a documentary on the 2003 murder of Baylor University basketball player Patrick Dennehy, a St. Francis High graduate. “Disgraced” tells the story of Dennehy being killed by Baylor teammate Carlton Dotson and how coach Dave Bliss tried to deceive investigators so they would not find out he was making improper payments to players. “This is a complex story, told through powerful first-person accounts, about both a senseless murder and an attempted cover-up of NCAA rule violations that still reverberate within Baylor University and collegiate athletics to this day,” said Stephen Espinoza, executive vice president of Showtime Sports. The film is slated to premiere at next month’s South by Southwest Film Festival before being shown on Showtime starting March 31.
