Watch the trailer for Showtime’s upcoming documentary on Lawrence Taylor (VIDEO)
On September 20th, Showtime will air a new feature-length documentary entitled “LT: The Life & Times” about New York Giants hall of fame linebacker Lawrence Taylor.
Taylor is unquestionably one of the greatest to ever play the game of football, but has had a well-documented post-NFL fall from grace, including drug addiction and pleading guilty of third-degree rape in 2009 after having sex with a 16-year-old prostitute. The film promises to provide an unprecedented look at LT’s life on and off the field, “with never-before-heard stories from Taylor, his family and friends, his former teammates and coaches on his playing days with the New York Giants, as well as his infamous off-field challenges, including his trials, and the troubling times that have plagued him throughout his life”.
If this trailer is any indication, this should be must-see television. We know we’ll be setting our DVRs.

Timely side note: Lawrence Taylor Jr. was released from jail today following his July arrest for statutory rape, child molestation, and sodomy. So it seems the troubled apple doesn’t fall far from the troubled tree.
