According to Variety's Cynthia Littleton, Sports Illustrated is partnering with CSI: Crime Scene Investigation producer Jerry Bruckheimer for an unscripted true-crime television series focusing on sports figures.
"People in Hollywood flip through People and Sports Illustrated and Time every week looking for story ideas," Time Inc. president and CEO Rich Battista said. "It's time for us to leverage that for ourselves."
Per Littleton, Time Inc. is shopping the series, titled Sports Illustrated: True Crime, to both TV and digital outlets.
There will be no re-enactments or acting in the project. It's all going to be interviews and original footage.
