Red V. Blue Dueling Barbers

In November, we were in Kentucky, working on our Red V. Blue documentary about the UofL-UK college basketball rivalry. The documentary has been in production since December 2011 and is picking up steam. Among the developments, we have added a new producer WHAS sports reporter Adam Lefkoe who started the popular UofL-UK themed "The Rivalry" YouTube series. Most recently, we were in Louisville, KY, where we went inside WAG's barbershop, a “divided” establishment where UK and Louisville fans once sat side by side. Boone clipped the Wildcat fans, and Mark Wagner and Mark Wagner Jr. clipped the Cardinals supporters. You may remember them from Adam Lefkoe's "The Rivalry" YouTube channel.

After the 2012 UK national championship, the barbers butted heads, and Boone struck out on his own. “Designed by Miracles” was the result, a barbershop with an interior painted entirely blue and white about twenty blocks east of WAG's on Broadway Avenue in downtown Louisville. For Red V. Blue we check in with Boone and the Wagner family before reuniting the barbers for a passionate debate on UK-UofL basketball.

See you at the big game on December 29th!

Denny Crum, Joe B. Hall interviewed for Red V Blue

Last week's Red V Blue production shoot couldn't have been more fruitful. The week started out with an interview with Coach Denny Crum, who led the Louisville Cardinals to two national championships. The next day we sat down with Coach Joe B. Hall, who led the Kentucky Wild Cat to a national championship both as a coach and a player. Then we were off to Paintsville in eastern Kentucky where we interviewed some local diehard fans. Friday night we finished off the trip by interviewing WHAS sports anchor Adam Lefkoe in Louisville, who rocked out some great stories in between his TV spots. Stay tuned for further developments.
