Facebook to air 10-episode series on Kentucky basketball

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The University of Kentucky has teamed with Facebook for a 10-episode series profiling the men's basketball program.

The Facebook Watch series "Inside the Madness: Kentucky Basketball" starts Saturday, and it promises to offer an "unprecedented behind-the-scenes view" into the program. Episodes are scheduled to be released every Saturday through March.

The series comes from the executive producers of Showtime's "A Season With," and it will go beyond the hardwood taking a look at the lives of players.

"They wanted to show that there's more than just wins and losses with these kids," head coach John Calipari said, "It's about preparing them for the rest of their lives."

Kentucky (17-8, 6-6) has faced plenty of adversity this season, as the young team is in the midst of its first 3-game losing streak since John Calipari became the head coach.

The show will provide an in-depth look at the games, along with workouts and practices.
