Disney’s ESPN has announced a brand new documentary film, which will be released as part of the popular 30 For 30 franchise. This new docuumentary is called “False Positive”

Butch Reynolds was one of the biggest track and field stars in the world, a talent in his prime on top of his sport. But when he took a drug test in Monaco in the summer of 1990, his career was upended, and his life was forever changed. Yet then and now, the facts of the case shed more than considerable doubt on what happened – instead revealing the tale of a man falsely accused and still compelled in many ways to fight to clear his name all these years later. False Positive tells Reynolds’ story in full, beginning with his childhood in Akron, Ohio, to global fame, to his subsequent suspension by the IAAF.

It would take years for him to put his life back together, and to this day, the ban continues to shadow his legacy. False Positive delves into Reynolds’ relentless battle to clear his name, revealing systemic flaws within sports governance and the enduring impact of false accusations on an athlete’s legacy. As the documentary makes clear, when it comes to a story like his, the real truth is found beyond the headlines. And it’s that truth that ultimately defines who a person really is.

“False Positive” is directed by Ismail Al-Amin and executive produced by ESPN Films and Hock Films.

This new documentary will premiere on ESPN on June 11th 2024 at 7pm ET and it will also be available to stream on ESPN+, along with ESPN+ on Hulu and the upcoming ESPN+ on Disney+, which will launch later this year in the United States.
