Tar Heel basketball fans should be excited about this. One of the most tradition-rich programs in college basketball will be on display throughout the 2019-20 season as fans will get a rare all-access look into the inner workings of the University of North Carolina men’s basketball program with All Access: A Season with Carolina Basketball.
“We are excited to showcase one of the most successful basketball programs of all time in a dedicated season-long access series,” said Stacie McCollum, senior director of programming and acquisitions. “All Access: A Season with Carolina Basketball will provide fans a first look at the new players and an unfiltered experience with the Tar Heels both on and off the court. We have a unique opportunity to follow hall of fame head coach Roy Williams during this special season as he is nine wins from passing his mentor, the legendary Dean Smith, on college basketball’s all-time wins list.”
The series will highlight the many dimensions of the North Carolina basketball program, its notable alumni and what it’s like to be part of the Carolina Family.
ACCN cameras will have exclusive access to daily North Carolina basketball activities along with a variety of off-the-court events. The series will feature:
- Tar Heels at practice, workouts, home games at the historic Dean E. Smith Center, around campus and team bonding excursions
- Road trips and the rigors of North Carolina’s 31-game regular-season schedule
- A behind-the-scenes look at Carolina’s annual Late Night with Roy event that tips off the 2019-20 season
- First-hand accounts from Tar Heel icons, and a peek inside their famous pick-up basketball game.
The multi-part series will debut in October and air exclusively on ACC Network (ACCN), the new, 24/7 national platform launching on August 22, 2019.
