Epix Hits The Road Again For All-Access NHL Bridgestone Winter Classic Series

By Barry Janoff

October 15, 2015: Calling it an "essential part of the experience for our fans and players," the NHL said that Epix Presents Road To The Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic would be back for a second season.

Three weekly one-hour episodes will air prior to the Bridgestone Winter Classic between the Montreal Canadiens and host Boston Bruins, scheduled for Jan. 1, 2016 in Gillette Stadium, to air live on NBC.

The fourth episode will air after the game.

The series will again be produced by 53-time Emmy award winner Ross Greenburg, narrated by Bill Camp and presented in partnership with NHL Original Productions.

"The series on Epix has become an essential part of the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic experience for our fans and players," John Collins, NHL COO, said in a statement. "The Bruins-Canadiens rivalry is tailor-made for the series and Ross Greenburg's skill as a storyteller. The show will undoubtedly uncover intriguing and captivating stories on and off the ice that will surprise even our most avid fans."

The NHL and EPIX will support with a multi-media platform, including TV, Internet, social media and in-arena.

Last season, Epix revived the Road to the Winter Classic for the outdoor game series on Jan. 1, 2015 after HBO, which ran 24/7: Road to the Winter Classic from 2011-14, and the NHL could not come to terms for coverage.

According to Mark Greenberg, Epix president and CEO, "Epix was committed to revitalizing the Road to The NHL Winter Classic series and restoring its original mission — which is to offer viewers unfiltered, intimate access inside the world of the NHL. The overwhelmingly positive response we received from our audience and the hockey fans who watched the first season is proof that we delivered."

"The overwhelmingly positive response we received from our audience and the hockey fans who watched the first season is proof that we delivered."

Epix described the series as an "all-access look inside the lives of these elite professional athletes, their families and their fans.

"I am excited to be working with Epix and the NHL on another season of EPIX Presents Road To The NHL Winter Classic," Greenburg said in a statement. "Utilizing strategically placed cameras and microphones and a 'you-are-there' format, each episode will present a unique and unedited look into the players' homes, locker rooms, training rooms and of course, the rink."

As happened last season, hockey fans in the U.S. will be able to stream each episode as it premieres on Epix via EPIX.com and NHL.com.

Epix Presents Road To The Winter Classic schedule:
• Episode 1: Wednesday, Dec. 16 10 PM (ET)
• Episode 2: Wednesday, Dec. 23  10 PM (ET)
• Episode 3: Wednesday, Dec. 30 10 PM (ET)
• Episode 4: Wednesday, Jan. 6 10 PM (ET)
