Coach Bobby Bowden and a Team That Tackled Every Obstacle to Accomplish
the Improbable

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#BowdenDynasty–This coming January, legendary football coach Bobby Bowden and
his family will kick-off the NCAA Football National Championship weekend
with their inspirational story, THE
BOWDEN DYNASTY: A Story of Faith, Family & Football
.” This
event will come to U.S. cinemas for a one-night premiere on Sunday,
January 8, 2017 live at 6:00 p.m. ET / 5:00 p.m. CT and tape-delayed to
6:00 p.m. MT / 6:00 p.m. PT, presented by Fathom Events and Dynasty
Productions Group. This exclusive event will be broadcast live from the

College Football Playoff National Championship that will be played
across the bay in Tampa. The live portion will feature star-studded red
carpet celebrity arrivals and interviews. Following the feature
presentation will be an exclusive Q&A and presentation with Coach Bowden
and special guests.

“The most amazing thing about our dynasty years is how consistent we
were,” Coach Bowden said. “But what makes those dynasty years so
ridiculously satisfying is that we ended each season ranked no lower
than number four in the polls, won two national championships, played
for three others and won 11 bowl games, including nine in a row. None of
us thought about these things at the time. Nor did we plan for them. In
hindsight, I realize we accomplished something unique in college
football history.”

Tickets for “THE BOWDEN DYNASTY: A Story of Faith, Family &
 can be purchased online by visiting
or at participating theater box offices. Fans and FSU alumni throughout
the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in more than 400 select movie

From producer John Corry, along with Rob Harvell and Brian
, the producers of ESPN Films’ The Book of Manning and I
Hate Christian Laettner
, “THE BOWDEN DYNASTY: A Story of Faith,
Family & Football”
explores the life and career of Bobby Bowden,
the coach with a team of loyal assistants and players who fought against
all odds and countless obstacles to forge one of the greatest
achievements in the history of sports. From 1987 to 2000, the once
laughable Florida State Seminoles won the hearts of America and thrilled
their fans with 14 consecutive top-four seasons with 10 or more wins.
Beginning with a come-from-behind victory in the 1988 Fiesta Bowl, Bobby
Bowden’s teams began a flirtation with perfection. In seven of those
seasons they lost only one game. More often than not, the players’ quest
for a perfect season came down to one play where mere inches or seconds
determined the outcome. The feature documentary’s all-star cast
includes: Fred Biletnikoff, the Bowden Family, Kenny Chesney, Jimmy
Johnson, Jim Kelly, Burt Reynolds, Nick Saban, Deion Sanders, Charlie
Ward, Peter Warrick, and more.

“With a name like Bowden, you just know this event is going to be good,”
Fathom Events CEO John Rubey said. “His reputation is unwavering and
fans across the nation will be blown away by this stirring journey of
faith, family and football.”

“On January 2nd 1987, Coach Bowden made one of the most significant
decisions in the history of college football,” added executive producer
John Corry. “On that day he declared he was going to stay at Florida
State. Everyone breathed a sigh of relief and all the assistant coaches
bought in as well. No one knew it then, but that was day one of a
historic 14-year Dynasty run. The rest is history and I’m grateful for
the support of everyone who has contributed to this project as an
expression of thanks to Coach Bowden – especially as the 30th
anniversary of that fateful day approaches.”
