With the launch of Max Kellerman’s new daily show on Fox Sports Net less than three weeks away, the unique 30-minute talk and interview show has been christened with the title, I MAX. The program debuts Monday, May 10 at 6:00 PM local time.
“You couldn’t think of a more appropriate title for this show,” said George Greenberg, Executive Vice President, Programming & Production, FSN. “Max Kellerman is one of today’s most intelligent and compelling sports television personalities, and I, MAX is all about providing him a forum to present his opinions on the day’s sports news and events.”
While the format for the fast-paced show is still in the formative stage, the central piece of I, MAX will be Kellerman delivering instant analysis on the sports news of the day through his outspoken and insightful opinions. A key element of the show, that promises to be “funny, smart and engaging,” will be the use of interactive technology. The show will also feature periodic in-studio or remote visits from prominent figures in the sports world.
Joining Kellerman as one of the on-air personalities of I, MAX is Bill Wolff, who is also the executive producer of the show. Wolff, who was the disembodied voice and coordinating producer of ESPN’s Around The Horn, now takes a significant on-camera role alongside Kellerman.
Also joining the show as a regular contributor is Denver Post sports columnist Woody Paige, who worked closely with Kellerman and Wolff as part of the Around The Horn team.
Other production team members include coordinating producer Brad Como and director Howie Lutt.
I, MAX will be produced each day in a studio in New York City.
FSN continues to produce the best in original sports programming. In addition to I, MAX, HEAD TO HEAD WITH JAMES BROWN debuts Sunday, May 9 at 9:00 PM, the first of four quarterly specials hosted by Brown. THE SPORTS LIST, a Top-12 countdown of the greatest sports arguments about the best players, events and games, premieres July 14 with host Summer Sanders.
