SHOWTIME SPORTS(R) AND CBS SPORTS COLLABORATE ON PRODUCTION OF "LT: THE LIFE AND TIMES," A DOCUMENTARY ON LIFE AND CAREER OF LAWRENCE TAYLOR

Produced in Association With NFL Films, Documentary Focuses on Taylor's Hall of Fame Career, His Turbulent Life Away from the Game, and Life Today

"LT: The Life and Times" Directed and Produced By CBS Sports' Emmy-Award Winning "A GAME OF HONOR" Production Team

NEW YORK (Oct. 11, 2012) - LT: The Life and Times, a feature length documentary film chronicling the spectacular on-field Hall of Fame NFL career of Lawrence Taylor, as well as his tumultuous off-field life, comes to SHOWTIME(R) in early 2013. The documentary will be the first-ever in-depth look focusing on Taylor's life with never-before-heard stories from Taylor, his family, his former teammates and coaches on his playing days with the Giants, his infamous off-field activities and the troubling times that have plagued him throughout his life.

Today, Taylor is a husband, father and grandfather who credits the support system of his family as the reason he is alive. For the first-time, LT: The Life and Times reveals insights from Taylor's current wife, ex-wife and children, who speak about the ups and downs of life with Lawrence Taylor.

When making the announcement yesterday on INSIDE THE NFL on SHOWTIME, Taylor said of the documentary, "When they first approached me with it I said, 'No way. I'm not going to do that. I'm not going to put my life on display.' But hell, my life is already on display so I decided to go with it and see how it turns out." He continued, "I'm looking forward to seeing (and) hearing some of the stories because a lot of the stories I don't remember... It's like anything else, football, you think that is your whole world but it's not really."

The production of LT: The Life and Times will be a collaboration between SHOWTIME Sports and CBS Sports in association with NFL Films. In addition to this documentary, SHOWTIME, CBS and NFL Films have partnered for the past five years on the Emmy(R)-Award winning show INSIDE THE NFL.

LT: The Life and Times will be directed and produced by CBS Sports' Emmy-Award winning production team from A Game of Honor. CBS Sports' Creative Director, Pete Radovich, Jr. who directed A Game of Honor, also will direct LT: The Life and Times. Radovich and CBS Sports Coordinating Producer Steve Karasik will co-produce LT: The Life and Times.
