The new Wheelhouse produced ESPN 30 for 30 short Kid Danny is set to premiere online at Grantland on Wednesday, August 13th. The short film follows the story of Danny Almonte, a little league pitcher from the Bronx who made headlines when he and his teammates were disqualified from the 2001 Little League World Series.
Wheelhouse Creative was proud to partner with director Andrew Cohn to tell this unique story for ESPN’s 30 for 30 series. Andrew previously directed the basketball documentary Medora, which received a large amount of critical acclaim last year on the festival circuit. We recently sat down with Andrew to talk more about Kid Danny – look for that interview later this week. Read more to watch an exclusive clip released by ESPN and be sure to watch the full film on Grantland later this week.
