Similar Shows: Beyond the Glory Spike TV takes an in-depth look at some of sports' most compelling figures and the challenges they've endured in Untold. Hosted by sports announcer Marv Albert, the subjects featured in this new original one-hour documentary series include Terry Bradshaw, Darryl Strawberry, Bo Jackson, Isiah Thomas, and Laird Hamilton. Each installment presents a first person account of the seemingly insurmountable obstacles each featured athlete had to overcome. These superstars share the intimate details of their successes and failures, stories only those closest to them have been privy to until now. As these men confront the past head on, Untold reveals how their very public "ups and downs" have ultimately shaped the men they are today.

    • Marv Albert: But what he (Terry) could not forsee was the criticism, the anger, the hatred, that he'd confront in his new city. Terry: I can go back and recall, early days in Pittsburgh, and clear signs of depression.

    • Marv Albert: A decade ago, legend was his destiny. His body was a gift from the gods, his athletic ability so natural, that it seemed unnatural. Marv Albert: A former athlete who once upon a time could do anything, anytime, anywhere. When you're Bo Jackson, when you've flown so close to the sun, what happens to the rest of your life, when your wings melt and you're forced to live as a mere mortal for the very first time?
