HBO’s Pete Rose Docuseries to Explore Lifetime Ban and More This Month

A documentary series centered around Cincinnati Reds legend Pete Rose is coming to HBO.

“Charlie Hustle & the Matter of Pete Rose” will look at Rose’s lifetime ban from MLB, taking “a retrospective journey, spanning more than 60 years, to tell the story of baseball’s all-time hits leader whose on-field achievements and off-field transgressions have made him one of the most polarizing figures in all of sports,” Warner Bros. Discovery announced Wednesday.

The series will air in four parts, with the first two installments coming to HBO on Wednesday, July 24, between 9-11 p.m., and the following two airing Thursday, July 25, from 9-11 p.m. All episodes will be available to stream on Max on July 24.

Among the people to appear in the series will be Rose and his son Pete Rose Jr., former Reds players Ken Griffey Sr. and Tommy Helms, broadcasters Al Michaels, Lesley Visser, Marty Brennaman, and Jon Miller, former Enquirer reporter C. Trent Rosecrans, and others.

The MLB banned Rose for life in 1989 for betting on baseball games. He retired as the league’s all-time hit king with 4,256 and earned 17 All-Star selections throughout his career. Rose was the 1973 NL MVP and won three World Series, two with the Reds and one with the Philadelphia Phillies.
