Showtime, CBS Sports To Air Documentary On Army-Navy Rivalry

Showtime and CBS Sports will team to produce a documentary-drama about the football programs at America's two oldest military academies in a new production called "A Game of Honor." The two-hour feature will give a behind-the-scenes look at both Army and Navy leading up to the December 10 football game between the two schools, one of the most storied rivalries in all of sports. 

"A Game of Honor" will air on Showtime beginning on December 21 and will show six months worth of footage from each team, including scenes from before, after and during games. 

Navy's sports website had this to say about the series: 

"A Game of Honor reveals their unique journey from summer training to the demands of an elite classroom education to the weekly preparations for the football field, all while training to serve their country in a time of war."

This year's Army-Navy game will take place at FedEx Field in Landover. It's always one of the most riveting games in sports, so this documentary is definitely a must-watch.
