In the summer of 1977, New York was a city in crisis. Paralyzed by a citywide blackout, political strife and the Son of Sam killing spree, the Big Apple was burning. Rising out of this troubled urban landscape to bring hope and inspiration came one of baseball s most storied franchises, The New York Yankees. Emmy® Award-winner John Turturro (O Brother, Where Art Thou?
), Emmy® and Golden Globe® nominee Oliver Platt ("The West Wing") and Daniel Sunjata ("Rescue Me") star in The Bronx is Burning
, an ESPN Original Entertainment presentation of the amazing-but-true story of how the New York Yankees single-handedly helped raise the spirits of a city in a time of darkness and uncertainty.
