Doc of the Day: Award-Winning DAKumentary


With the sports world hitting the pause button, there is an obvious huge void for fans, starving for sports entertainment.

The Dallas Cowboys media team has produced over 25 documentaries over the last five years and has decided to use this idle time to feature many of them, which include Emmy-winning and nominated productions that touch on a wide range of topics and players from all 60 seasons of Dallas Cowboys Football.

Today, we kick off the series with "Dak Prescott: A Family Reunion."

In 2017, the team of Kent Garrison, David Helman and Taylor Stern followed Dak back to Starkville, MS for a detailed look at how the superstar handled instant stardom. The film shows what it was like to return to his old stomping grounds and be around the people that knew him and loved him long before he became the starting quarterback of America's Team.

In the spring of 2018, the "DAKumenatry" became the first doc to win an Emmy Award in the Lone Star Chapter for best documentary.

(Note: All of the films can be seen either on, or the Cowboys NOW app, featuring Connected TV applications – Apple TV, Roku and Amazon Fire.)
