HBO Sports and IMG’s Original Content unit are pick-and-rolling with a new five-episode docuseries following Gonzaga University’s 2015-16 basketball season. The premium cabler will premiere Gonzaga: The March To Madness at 10 PM February 16, with subsequent episodes airing in that same slot through March 15 — Day 1 of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.
March To Madness follows the team and 17-year head coach Mark Few from the start of the season in November, going game-by-game as the Zags close in on an NCAA tourney berth. The series features exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, offering a unique look at the personalities behind the powerhouse program and how a small college nestled in Spokane, WA, has achieved success against all odds.
The Bulldogs are a perennial lock for March Madness, and this season is no exception: The Bulldogs are 13-3 and ranked in the top 25 nationally. Last year, the Zags scored the most wins in school history (35) but lost to eventual champion Duke in the Elite Eight round of the tournament.
Gonzaga: The March To Madness follows HBO rival Showtime’s docuseries A Season With Notre Dame Football, which chronicled the Fighting Irish’s 2015 campaign.
