KENNESAW — In the two years leading up to kickoff of Kennesaw State’s football program, a four-part documentary will be aired on the team’s creation.
The series — “It’s Our Time: The Building of Kennesaw State Football” — is a joint production between the university’s athletic department and Pic2 Productions.
The first of four original episodes will air Friday at 9:30 p.m. on CSS, the regional sports cable network. Additional episodes are tentatively set for late 2014, the summer of 2015 and the fall of 2015.
According to a university release, Friday’s episode will provide a behind-the-scenes look that begins with the formation of an exploratory committee chaired by former Georgia coaching great Vince Dooley.
It will also include, among other topics: the University System of Georgia Board of Regents’ vote in favor of Kennesaw State adding football, the university securing Fifth Third Bank as its leading sponsor, the official announcement of football coming to campus the hiring of Brian Bohannon as the Owls’ coach, the university’s invitation to join the Big South Conference and the announcement of the team’s first game, set for Sept. 3, 2015 at East Tennessee State.
Future episodes will showcase Bohannon and his staff on the recruiting trail and other formative moments leading up to Kennesaw State’s first games.
“Through this documentary, we will provide viewers with an inside look into all the decision-making and planning, while building the excitement level as Kennesaw State prepares for kickoff,” said Al Barba, director of athletic communications for the university and a co-executive producer of the documentary. “The response to football at Kennesaw State has been overwhelming and that will come to life in this series as we document history.”
Steve Graham, an eight-time Emmy award-winning producer, is producing the documentary. He has worked on past documentaries that included a look at Dooley’s final season as Georgia’s coach and the storied football rivalry between Notre Dame and Southern Cal.
