‘Frontline’ Documentary on NFL Premieres Tonight on PBS
League of Denial: The NFL’s Concussions Crisis premieres tonight at 9 p.m. on PBS.
The National Football League, a multibillion-dollar commercial juggernaut, presides over America’s indisputable national pastime. But the NFL is under assault: thousands of former players have claimed the league tried to cover up how football inflicted long-term brain injuries on many players. What did the NFL know, and when did it know it? In a special two-hour investigation, FRONTLINE reveals the hidden story of the NFL and brain injuries.
Jane is interviewed in the feature, and wrote a profile on Dr. Ann McKee, featured in the documentary, last year in Grantland. Read it here.
