Projects for our recent clients The Cost of Winning HBO Documentary Series From HBO Sports and Emmy®-winning executive producer Michael Strahan comes an inspiring four-part documentary series that follows the against-all-odds story of St. Frances Academy's football program. Located in the heart of Baltimore, the underserved 200-year-old Catholic school became a symbol of hope (and controversy) after the Panthers were expelled from their private-school league for being "too good" and opted to play a grueling national schedule in an effort to chart the players' paths to college.
