Park Pictures announced today that ESPN will broadcast the world premiere of the women’s football documentary Born to Play on Wednesday, July 1st, 2020, at 9 p.m. EDT. Directed by Viridiana Lieberman, the film is a love letter to the game, written by people who you never knew played. Until now.

Born to Play spends a season with the Boston Renegades, a women’s tackle football team on the path to redemption after going undefeated but losing their championship the previous year. These unpaid athletes put their bodies on the line while maintaining full-time careers that support their lifelong dream… proving that football is for everyone. The doc shines a light on a team of remarkable women, ranging in age from 19-49, from a vast spectrum of backgrounds who dedicate their time, bodies and paychecks to pursue their passion for playing football.
