SHOWTIME SPORTS(R) RELEASES THE OFFICIAL TRAILER AND KEY ART FOR "PARIAH: THE LIVES AND DEATHS OF SONNY LISTON"

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

NEW YORK - October 25, 2019 - SHOWTIME Sports has released the official trailer and key art for the upcoming documentary film PARIAH: THE LIVES AND DEATHS OF SONNY LISTON, premiering Friday, November 15 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. 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. To watch and share the official trailer for PARIAH, go to https://youtu.be/BHK3KPv2yhc.

Sonny Liston overcame insurmountable odds and became the heavyweight champion of the world in 1962 when he knocked out Floyd Patterson. Just eight years later, his wife would find him dead in their Las Vegas home from a supposed heroin overdose. Throughout his rise to fame, Liston was disparaged and denigrated by white society as a violent criminal. His association with notorious mobsters and his back-to-back losses to Muhammad Ali inevitably caused Liston to spiral out of control. The documentary film examines the peaks and troughs of Liston's life, and how the mystery that clouded his death continues to this day. Developed from Shaun Assael's investigative book The Murder of Sonny Liston: Las Vegas, Heroin, and Heavyweights, PARIAH features exclusive conversations with Mike Tyson and boxing historians Nigel Collins, Jerry Izenberg, Bob Lipsyte, 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(R) Award-winning DISGRACED, the multi-part series SHUT UP AND DRIBBLE, 100%: JULIAN EDELMAN and QUIET STORM: THE RON ARTEST STORY.
