The Michael Vick Project is an American documentary following football player Michael Vick, executive produced by James DuBose.[1] The ten-part docu-series premiered on January 26, 2010 on BET and aired Tuesdays at 10 p.m, chronicling the 2009 widely publicized and criticized plummet of the NFL's onetime highest paid player.[2]

Drawing 2.8 million viewers to tune-in and witness the former famed quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons deliver his testimony--detailing his plunging fall from NFL super stardom over his admitted involvement in a "cruel and inhumane" dog-fighting ring; to telling the experiences he encountered while serving nearly two-years in a federal penitentiary;[3] to expressing his intent to "be a part of the solution, not the problem"[4]. The days leading to the series debut were marked by stark criticism of the project, with organizations including PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) speaking out against allegedly "glorifying" the man who had done the time for the crime.

Here's what PETA had to say:

"Michael Vick may deserve to walk free, but he doesn't deserve to be a football star or a hero to children"[5]

Here's what executives for BET had to say:

"No way are we excusing or minimizing the atrocity that Michael was involving in, Michael makes no attempt to do that. It is inexcusable. However, there are numerous public figures egregious behavior and have been given a second chance."[4]

"It's important for us to capture this moment to see what someone does when they have the opportunity to rebuild themselves. It might serve as a road map for young men facing the same challenge."[4]


Michael Vick searches for personal and professional redemption while exploring his past.
