Documentary Film Examining The Complex Life And Death Of The Former Heavyweight Champion Premieres Friday, November 15 At 9 P.M. ET/PT

?I think it was unacceptable that Sonny Liston didn?t get off the stool.? ? Mike Tyson

NEW YORK ? November 14, 2019 ? SHOWTIME Sports has released an exclusive clip from the upcoming documentary film PARIAH: THE LIVES AND DEATHS OF SONNY LISTON, premiering tomorrow, Friday, November 15 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. In the first-look clip, former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson and boxing author and journalist Bob Lipsyte opine on Sonny Liston?s mysterious loss to Cassius Clay in which the heavyweight champ quit on his stool to the 7-1 underdog Clay during their first meeting in 1964.



Written and directed by Simon George and told through original conversations with luminaries, historians and some of Liston?s closest friends and family, PARIAH chronicles the rise and precipitous fall of one of the most vilified and misunderstood sports champions of all time. Developed from Shaun Assael?s investigative book The Murder of Sonny Liston: Las Vegas, Heroin, and Heavyweights, PARIAH features exclusive conversations with Tyson, Lipsyte and boxing historians Nigel Collins, Jerry Izenberg, Don Majeski and Assael.

PARIAH: THE LIVES AND DEATHS OF SONNY LISTON is executive produced by Louise Norman, Adam Hawkins and Dimitri Doganis. It is the latest in a series of unscripted programming from SHOWTIME Sports Documentary Films that spotlights culturally relevant subject matter in the world of sports. Additional titles in the lineup include the 2017 Sports Emmy? Award-winning DISGRACED, the multi-part series SHUT UP AND DRIBBLE, 100%: JULIAN EDELMAN and QUIET STORM: THE RON ARTEST STORY.
