Lawrence Taylor hasn’t played a snap in the NFL since 1993, but the mark he has left on the league is indelible.

Whether he was terrorizing quarterbacks and knifing into the backfield for one of his 132.5 sacks or getting suspended after testing positive for cocaine, L.T. was always finding a way to make headlines.

Showtime is bravely attempting to highlight the controversial linebacker’s best and worst moments—and the many in between—in a new documentary entitled LT: The Life & Times.

It is an event that fans of the New York Giants, the NFL and football in general aren’t going to want to miss, so keep reading to find out when to watch and what to expect.

About the Documentary

This is going to be a candid affair that is chock-full of interviews with Taylor himself, close friends and family of the former superstar linebacker, teammates and coaches, plus many more.

The good times will certainly be covered—such as when LT helped the G-Men win two Super Bowls and won the NFL MVP award—as well as the bad. There definitely seems to be much more bad than good in recent years, with Taylor being arrested numerous times for drug issues and other illegal activity.

It should be refreshing to hear LT discuss these problems in a frank fashion, and hopefully viewers find out exactly why he’s having troubles in his post-playing career.

Make sure you tune in, as Showtime rarely disappoints.
