An Oct. 17 premiere is planned for a new ESPN sports series that will follow Kentucky coach John Calipari and the basketball team as they prepare for the 2012 season, UK announced Friday.
All-Access Kentucky will be 30 minutes weekly and air at 7 p.m. Wednesdays, the university's news release said. The first three episodes are scheduled for Oct. 17, 24 and 31.
"The episodes will chronicle teaching six new players the Kentucky system and trying to mold high school superstars into instant national champions, all while recruiting the class of 2013," UK said.
Kentucky won the NCAA championship earlier this year.
Never miss a local story.
"With many new players on the Wildcats this year, there is enormous interest surrounding this team," said Norby Williamson, ESPN's executive vice president of programming and acquisitions. His comments were included in the news release. "All-Access Kentucky gives us an opportunity to deliver something entertaining and unique that helps bring fans closer to a sport they love."
SportsCenter, ESPN.com and SportsNation will feature segments and highlights from the program.
