LOS ANGELES — Obviously Pat Summitt's story hasn't been fully told yet.
After a moving biographical video played at the recent ESPY Awards — revealing, among other things, that Summitt had been pregnant several times before having her only child — word spread that another major documentary or film project on her life might be in the works.
Her son, Tyler Summitt, told me of the rumored projects: "Nothing has been set in stone thus far, though there have been many requests."
The 1998 documentary "A Cinderella Season: The Lady Vols Fight Back" chronicled the Lady Vols for an entire season, from early-morning torture runs to the drama inside the locker room. HBO aired the documentary.
It revealed Summitt's own background, her drive and intensity during the 1997 NCAA Championship. Critics embraced the documentary for its insight and accessibility.
Certainly Summitt has respect in the Hollywood industry these days. Nashville native Reese Witherspoon narrated the ESPY Awards video on Summitt's life. Peyton Manning presented Summitt the Arthur Ashe Courage Award, given to a sports figure for his or her fearlessness on and off the court.
Summitt stepped away from her role as Lady Vols head coach this year after being diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's disease.
"The Walking Dead," which shoots near Atlanta, will return for its third season at 9 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 14, AMC has announced. Sixteen episodes will be produced and will be split into two runs of eight, with the back eight airing in early 2013.
The comic-book version of the series recently released its 100th issue and will set sales records.
