Sports documentary filmmaker Andrew Muscato sheds light on the dark reality of clean athletes being punished by inadequate anti-doping policies.
Doped: The Dirty Side of Sports — premiering Wednesday, September 30, on EPIX — offers a timely and critical look at the often-controversial history of anti-doping policies in professional sports. Through first-hand interviews with athletes who claim their professional careers have been unfairly harmed by ineffective drug testing, as well as representatives from Anti-Doping Agencies, the film sheds new light on a system that has trouble catching the cheaters. And, through the first-ever public interview with former MLB investigator Ed Dominguez, the film also reveals more about what the MLB Commissioner did and did not know about baseball’s infamous steroid scandal.
Sports documentarian Andrew Muscato (Schooled: The Price of College Sports, Branca’s Pitch) discusses with Ric the new film, why current anti-doping policies are falling short, and what’s needed to fix the system and create fairness in banned substance testing.
