Prime time special includes a powerful and emotional interview with a California teenager who speaks out for the first time about his alleged assault.
With students returning to school and the 2016 football season underway, Outside the Lines PRIMETIME: “Hazing: The Hidden Horror” (Tuesday, Sept. 13, 10 p.m. ET, ESPN) will examine extreme hazing, primarily amongst high school athletes.
“For the last eight months, Outside the Lines has been investigating a series of violent, athletic hazing incidents with one troubling common thread – all of the victims have been sodomized,” said OTL investigative reporter John Barr. “Hazing victims with the courage to break the code of silence, police, who specialize in investigating sex crimes and experts, who’ve studied this phenomenon have all helped to lift the veil of secrecy on what’s become disturbingly-ritualized behavior.”
