Scott Kazmir will be among the guests on hand for a year-end edition of HBO’s Costas Now, which will begin airing Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET. The Rays lefty will join the Phillies’ Ryan Howard and Jimmy Rollins to discuss the World Series.
Here’s an excerpt from the press release:
Using a town hall setting, the December edition of COSTAS NOW will focus on some of the biggest stories to emerge in a drama-filled year. Each segment will include a video set-up piece, followed by a live panel discussion hosted by Costas.
Among the topics that will be explored in-depth on the program will be a review of the New York Giants extraordinary Super Bowl championship; incredible athletic performances at the Beijing Olympics; the dramatic playoff finish at the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines; and the Philadelphia Phillies’ engaging World Series title run.
Live on the stage with Costas for their respective segments will be Michael Strahan, Osi Umenyiora and Rodney Harrison for the Super Bowl revisit; Michael Phelps, Dara Torres and Nastia Liukin for the Olympics segment; golfer Rocco Mediate will be on the set while Tiger Woods will appear via satellite to revisit their remarkable battle at Torrey Pines; and for the World Series review Jimmy Rollins, Ryan Howard and Scott Kazmir will be in attendance.
The 90-minute program will also feature a year-in-review panel that will address other meaningful moments from 2008 with special guests John McEnroe and Charles Barkley.
If you miss it tomorrow, the program will also air on HBO several more times through December and early January and will be available on HBO On Demand from Dec. 22-Jan. 4, according to the network.
