Genre: Sports Talk, Newsmagazine
Premise: Longtime CBS Sunday night staple ``60 Minutes'' has become synonymous with investigative journalism since its 1968 debut and has spawned genre-specific variations on a number of cable networks, most of which feature repackaged versions of previously aired ``60 Minutes'' reports. This monthly, sports-focused version on CBS corporate sibling Showtime bucks the repackaging trend by featuring original reporting from veteran journalists, including lead correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi, longtime sports journalist Armen Keteyian and ``60 Minutes'' correspondents Anderson Cooper, Lara Logan and Scott Pelley. In addition to original segments, which range in content from investigative reports to interviews and profiles of sports figures, episodes feature updated classic sports stories from the ``60 Minutes'' archive.
