Untold Volume 2 premise and release date
Untold Volume 2 is a four-week docu-series that once again brings fresh eyes to epic tales from the wide world of sports. There will be four episodes, which will be released weekly on Netflix beginning Tues, August 16th. The additional films will be released on August 23, August 30, and September 6.
Episode One: “The Girlfriend Who Didn’t Exist”
Runtime: Part One, 1 hour 4 mins; Part Two, 1 hour.
The first installment is a two-part documentary called The Girlfriend Who Didn’t Exist (directed by Ryan Duffy & Tony Vainuku), which features conversations with both Te’o and Ronaiah Tuiasosopo (who has since come out as a transgender woman and prefers to go by “Naya” and she/her pronouns but still also uses the Ronaiah Tuiasosopo name) discussing the scandal that cost Te’o not only his dignity but millions of dollars. Cat-fished into a relationship and the jealous catfish kills off her character, causing Te’o’s fame to sour, but once the story is revealed as a hoax, the NFL questions Te’o’s involvement and sexuality.
Episode Two: “The Rise and Fall of And1″
Runtime: 1 hour 8 mins
The second documentary follows the And1 Mixtape Tour and is called The Rise and Fall of And1 (directed by Kevin Wilson Jr.) Here we learn about the company And1 and how they brought Streetball to fame, becoming one of the most influential sources in sports, and how that all fell apart. From influencing and inspiring hope to exploitation and greed, And1 is an emotional journey.
Episode Three: “Operation Flagrant Foul”
Runtime: 1 hour 16 mins
The third story we’ll get is the Tim Donaghy documentary Operation Flagrant Foul (directed by David Terry Fine), where we’re told about the corrupt referee, who made bets on his own games and made a huge amount of money. Fraud, extortion, and the mob, this documentary covers some wild stories of what can go on in the background of the NBA.
Episode Four: “Race of the Century”
Runtime: 1 hour 22 mins
The final story we’re given is a little slower in scandals, but not in tension and ability. America’s Cup documentary Race of the Century (directed by series executive producers Chapman Way and Maclain Way) will increase your heart rate as we watch one Australian team come together to take down America’s 132-year winning streak.
Each documentary features personal, honest interviews with the key people involved. Really exploring and showcasing how deep these stories go. They have subjects and characters that operate on the fringes of society and legality.
