NEW YORK (Oct. 22, 2015) – SHOWTIME Sports® will chronicle the buildup to the Dec. 5 all-Brooklyn showdown between WBA Middleweight World Champion Daniel Jacobs and undefeated former champion Peter Quillin with its latest installment of the Emmy award-winning series “ALL ACCESS.”
“ALL ACCESS: Jacobs vs. Quillin” will premiere on Tuesday, Nov. 17 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME. This one-episode chapter of the revealing documentary series joins “INSIDE THE NFL” (9 p.m. ET/PT) and “A SEASON WITH NOTRE DAME FOOTBALL” (10 p.m. ET/PT) in the SHOWTIME Sports Tuesday programming lineup.
“ALL ACCESS” will introduce viewers to two colorful and charismatic fighters on a collision course toward a career-defining moment. It will welcome viewers into the personal life of Brownsville native Daniel Jacobs, an inspirational cancer survivor balancing an agenda of charitable endeavors, fatherhood and training for the toughest fight of his boxing career. Peter Quillin–Brooklyn’s adopted son–will peel back the curtain on his New York journey, a rocky road that winds from a homeless shelter to a stint at an IHOP as the former champion looks to claim another belt.
It all leads to the Battle for Brooklyn on Saturday, Dec. 5, live on SHOWTIME (9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT) from Barclays Center. Winner takes the belt and Brooklyn.
“ALL ACCESS” earned a Sports Emmy for the second consecutive year this May, taking home the honors for Outstanding Sports Documentary Series at the 36th Annual Sports Emmy Award ceremony in New York City. The revealing documentary series, which chronicles the buildup and aftermath of boxing’s biggest prizefights, won its first Sports Emmy at the 2014 ceremony for Outstanding Edited Sports Event Coverage with “ALL ACCESS: Mayweather vs. Canelo Epilogue.”
