If you’re a ’90s kid, the mere mention of American Gladiators evokes the show’s iconic theme song. Originally airing from 1989 to 1996, the famed reality-competition series that pitted a bunch of Davids vs. a slew of muscular Goliaths was a ’90s staple.
Earlier this month, Netflix announced an upcoming docuseries, Muscles & Mayhem: An Unauthorized Story of American Gladiators, about the memorable program, but you don’t have to wait to learn all the fascinating behind-the-scenes details because Part 1 of ESPN’s 30 for 30: The American Gladiators Documentary is now streaming on ESPN+.
Directed by Ben Berman, the two-part documentary explores how the show went from a germ of an idea in Erie, Pennsylvania to an international sensation. Per ESPN, “what begins as a traditional sports documentary soon gives way to bigger themes of greed, divergent narratives, and ultimately questions how history itself is written.”
