Airdate: What’s My Name: Muhammad Ali

FOX Showcase screens HBO documentary What’s My Name: Muhammad Ali in early August.

Directed by Antoine Fuqua, this is a two part special on the champion boxer, narrated by Liev Schreiber.

Screening over 2 weeks, this aired internationally in May.

Chronicling the extraordinary life of one of the 20th century’s most iconic figures. Directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Southpaw, The Magnificent Seven, The Equalizer franchise) with LeBron James and Maverick Carter serving as executive producers, What’s My Name | Muhammad Ali explores Ali’s challenges, confrontations, comebacks and triumphs through recordings of his own voice. The two-part documentary paints an intimate portrait of a man who was a beacon of hope for oppressed people around the world and, in his later years, was recognised as a global citizen and a symbol of humanity and understanding. Alongside using Ali himself to guide viewers through his journey, What’s My Name: Muhammad Ali features archival footage, some of it previously unseen.

Saturdays from August 3 at 8.30pm on FOX Showcase.
