On Freddie Roach
Peter Berg ("Friday Night Lights") is among the executive producers of this cinema-verite series, which chronicles the life and career of prominent boxing trainer Freddie Roach. It's an intimate portrayal of the 51-year-old bachelor against the backdrop of his personal battle with Parkinson's disease, which is very likely linked to his own career as an amateur boxer. Roach has trained more than 20 world champions, including Manny Pacquiao, Oscar de la Hoya and Mike Tyson, and he is a member of both the World Boxing Hall of Fame and the International Boxing Hall of Fame. He owns and operates the famed Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, Calif.
