Terry Bradshaw's "Going Deep” documentary will premier on HBO at 9 p.m. on Tuesday. Bradshaw narrates his own life story both in standard documentary-interview format and while performing his live show at the Clay Cooper Theatre in Branson, Mo, according to Joshua Axelrod of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
The film's director, Keith Cossrow, is a die-hard Steelers fan and a 1993 Mt. Lebanon High School graduate. Cossrow worked on Bradshaw's NFL Film’s “A Football Life” episode in 2019. So, he has some familiarity with the "Blonde Bomber."
Cossrow felt there was more to Bradshaw's story and that's why he pitched him the idea of a more in-depth documentary.
A good portion of the documentary will center around Bradshaw's career as an entertainer, but his rocky relationship with Chuck Noll will also be discussed.
Cossrow joined Dave Dameshek on the Minus Three Podcast recently and Cossrow felt that Bradshaw's relationship with Noll was not much different than Bill Belichick-Tom Brady, Roger Staubach-Tom Landry and Joe Montana-Bill Walsh. Cossrow doesn't think Bradshaw was blowing smoke, but there have been rough relationships with other great head coach/quarterback duos, as well.
“I wasn’t his kind of quarterback, and he wasn’t my kind of coach,” Bradshaw said via Rob Owen of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “I’m a tough guy, but I do get my feelings hurt. All this (stuff) I had to go through to win his favor. He won because he made me tough. He made me a real (jerk). I got hateful in my spirit on the inside.”
