ESPN will air the highly anticipated 30 for 30 documentary “Once Upon a Time in Queens” over the next two days, beginning Wednesday September 15 at 9pm AEST on ESPN.

The first two parts in the four part event will air Wednesday September 15, before the remaining two parts on Thursday September 16 at 9pm AEST on ESPN.

Featuring exclusive interviews with players from the World Series winning team, including Keith Hernandez, Darryl Strawberry, Dwight Gooden, Mookie Wilson, Lenny Dykstra, Kevin Mitchell, and many more, the film traces the origins of the 1986 team back to the late 1970s, when the Mets were a listless, struggling franchise – and New York City was nearly bankrupt.

But as the grime and hopelessness that defined the city gave way to the high-flying, “greed is good” rise of the 1980s, the Mets emerged, too. And the transformations – of the city, and the ballclub – ran in parallel paths in every which way imaginable.

The city may have had a glamorous sheen, but dirt and danger were still everywhere.

The Mets may have been full of swagger and star power, but demons and disaster always loomed.

The documentary is executive produced by Jimmy Kimmel, Sal “Cousin Sal” Iacono, Kimmelot’s Scott Lonker, ITV America’s David George and MLB’s Nick Trotta.

ESPN and ESPN2 are available on Foxtel, Kayo Sports, Fetch TV and SKY NZ. 

“Once Upon a Time in Queens” directed by Nick Davis

Parts 1&2: Wednesday, September 15, 9pm AEST on ESPN
