Warriors of Liberty City (Starz) – Premieres 16th September
A documentary that follows the Liberty City Warriors, a youth football programme that as well as producing NFL players, is primarily there to give the youngsters something to do in a place that has constant street violence.
The programme talks to and follows some of the players and members of the coaching staff, where it shows how and why the team was formed, how it’s increased to incorporate other sports and is also a place that offers additional educational help to the kids. It then looks into the lives of the those in the teams and why it beneficial to them, along with highlighting the problems that go on in the area.
While there are a couple of similarities to Coach Snoop, mainly with the personal lives of the kids that play. This one is more focused on how the club is beneficial to the community, and the problems that the area it’s in creates. It is an interesting watch, but does drag in places. That said it’s worth checking out.
