A new documentary — “Out of the Blue” — about Kentucky’s 1998 national championship will make its debut Dec. 25th on WKYT-TV and WYMT-TV and then be available for purchase by UK fans.
Once again former player UK Cameron Mills has teamed with Filthy Rags Media, Eppic Films and WKYT-TV to put the documentary together just like they did earlier on the 1996 national championship team documentary.
“The difference, to me, is that I played a lot more on the 1998 team. Everybody expected 1996 to happen. Nobody expected the one in 1998. Realistically, no one in the national media did. Kentucky fans didn’t. I think our team did because every team does but we lost a lot of good players — and a coach — off the 1997 Final Four team,” Mills said.
The TV version will be about 44 minutes. The DVD will have what Mills called “extra stuff” that will feature more in-depth interviews than the TV show will have. Mills said the interview with coach Tubby Smith is one Kentucky fans should really enjoy.
Pre-orders for the DVD can be made now at cameronmillsradio.com or outofthebluemovie.com. If you pre-order now, the DVD will be shipped Dec. 23rd to arrive on Dec. 26th at the earliest. Cost is $9.99 plus $5 shipping and handling.
“The show will air on some other TV stations. We are still working on that and more information will be coming out later about that,” Mills said.
