30 for 30 Specials

Postby ParamGupta47 » Sun Aug 12, 2018 9:59 am

The main 30 for 30 series has three seasons, but there are other spinoffs/specials/separate series - ESPN Films Presents, 30 for 30 Shorts, and 30 for 30 Soccer Stories. Some of the episodes from these three spinoffs/specials/separate series have been included as "Specials" under 30 for 30. Moreover, there exist separate TVDB pages for all three, which list the respective episodes. Either all the episodes from the aforementioned three need to be added under Specials, or the three need to be recognized as separate series, and the episodes removed from Specials under 30 for 30.

The problem is that the Wikipedia page for 30 for 30 isn't very clear (and there seem to have been new episodes/documentaries under the ESPN Films Presents head that haven't been added to the Wikipedia page), and the ESPN website recognizes Shorts as a part of the 30 for 30 series, but has no clear recognition or categorization for ESPN Films Presents or 30 for 30 Soccer Stories.

Apologies for not providing a concrete solution; I hope someone can make sense of this, and make the necessary changes. Cheers!

Please be sure to see this recent thread where there was a cleanup:

Last I responded I think he had created the episodes under 30 for 30 shorts, but they had not been deleted from specials (even though it got moved to resolved).

Actually, I've been working on these as the individual series entries are uncovered.
Could sure use a hand moving the episode images to ESPN Films, so we can close the book on S00 of this series.

I see what you are talking about. ESPN Films S1 is done, these specials from 30 for 30 (I assume) can be deleted now.
