From an infamous brawl during a 2004 NBA game to pivotal points in boxing, tennis, basketball and more, Netflix’s Untold docuseries is slated to tell the behind the scenes stories of some of sports’ biggest moments.
The streaming platform recently released the trailer for the five-part docuseries, giving a sneak peek into upcoming episodes, including one on the “Malice at the Palace” brawl that broke out between players and spectators on November 19, 2004 during a Paces and Pistons game. Several players were suspended from the league, fined and even faced assault charges after the fight.
One of the players at the center of the brawl, Ron Artest (now Metta Sandiford-Artest), is telling his side of the story.
“I want the story out there. Like, what happened? Go frame-by-frame,” Artest says in the trailer.
The series will also include stories from Olympic gold medalist Caitlyn Jenner, boxer Christy Martin, tennis player Mardy Fish, and the United Hockey League team Danbury Thrashers.
Check out the synopsis of the series from Netflix below:
