New Five-Part ESPN Series 'Snoop & Son: A Dad's Dream' Set for January 14 (Watch Trailer)

ESPN will televise a five-part documentary style series “Snoop & Son: A Dad’s Dream,” beginning Wednesday, January 14, with an unprecedented look at Snoop Dogg’s journey with his football star son Cordell Broadus. 

The series will air four consecutive Wednesday nights at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN (re-airs on ESPNU) with a fifth and final episode airing in mid-February.

Cordell, 17, is one of the most sought after recruits in the nation, with top schools from Notre Dame to USC vying for him to play for them. Snoop is a constant presence in his son’s football life. He’s a regular attendee at practice and is in frequent contact with Cordell’s head coach. When Snoop is on the road and can’t attend a game, he has the game streamed to him, no matter where he is in the world. 

Over 10 years ago, Snoop started the Snoop Youth Football League (SYFL) because of his passion for coaching kids. The League has provided thousands of young boys and girls a nurturing environment to learn life skill to be used on and off the field. Cordell began his football career under his father’s guidance as a player in the SFYL.

With exclusive behind-the-scenes access to Snoop and Cordell as he prepares for the next level, the half-hour show will take viewers into the Broadus home, on Snoop’s tour bus as he breaks down game film, and on the sidelines for each game of Cordell’s senior season.

Rory Karpf, executive producer, said, “People will see a very different side of Snoop. They’ll see a man navigating the line between father and friend. They’ll see someone whose interest in his son’s life reflects what he himself never had. Above all, they’ll see a father extraordinarily proud of his son.”

“I’ve been known for my work in many industries, but what I am most proud of is my beautiful family. My son is an extremely talented athlete and my wife and I will be by his side wherever he chooses to play. I’m looking forward to the world watching me go through this journey with my family,” said Snoop.
