Disney’s ESPN has announced a brand-new documentary called “I’m Just Here for the Riot”, which is part of the popular documentary series, “30 For 30”.

On June 15, 2011, the Canucks’ Game 7 Stanley Cup Finals loss to the Boston Bruins sparks a massive riot in downtown Vancouver. Police cars are overturned and burned, windows are shattered, stores are looted, and waves of young people are caught up in the mayhem. I’m Just Here For The Riot chronicles the aftermath of an event captured on hundreds of cell phone cameras; the rioters are outed, shamed, and see their lives altered forever.

From the mob mentality in the streets to similar vengeance in the online hunting of those responsible, it is a dark moment in the city’s history – one that raises deeper questions about fandom, violence, and the shocking power of an angry crowd.

Kathleen Jayme and Asia Youngman directed this brand-new documentary, which ESPN Films executive produced.

“I’m Just Here for the Riot” will premiere on June 4th 2024, at 7:30pm ET on ESPN, and it will also be available to stream on ESPN+.  

Many previous ESPN “30 For 30” documentaries are also available to stream now on Disney+, and ESPN+ will also be available within Disney+ in the United States later this year.
