E60 PROFILES CLEVELAND MLB STAR FRANCISCO LINDOR
On Sunday night (8 p.m. ET, ESPN2), E60 will examine the life of Cleveland Indians star shortstop Francisco Lindor. He’s arguably baseball’s most exciting player. Trade rumors and talks of a massive contract swirling around Lindor have gripped headlines, though the spotlight has never taken his attention away from what matters to him most – the bond with his older sister, Legna. E60 has spent the last year and a half documenting exclusive access with Lindor, including his original home in Puerto Rico. ESPN.com senior writer Buster Olney sits down with a candid and emotional Lindor as he opens up in detail for the first time about his relationship with his sister and how even on the most devastating day of his career, losing in Game 7 of the 2016 World Series, his family won.
ANOTHER AWARD FOR E60:
The animated E60 “Tell Me a Story” segment with actor/comedian Chris Tucker from February 2019 has been honored as “Best Animated Film” by the Austin Comedy Short Film Festival of Summer 2020, it was announced last weekend. The piece was created by Leon Belt, Blake Foeman, Ben Houser, Justin Linde, Adam Schaub and Jeff Arias. “This was a well-deserved award for a diverse group of young, talented storytellers,” said Andy Tennant, E60 executive producer. More background on the creation of the piece in this Front Row post from 2019.
