Doc of the Day: Witten Was "Driven" To Succeed


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 continue the series with a closer look at one of the greatest Cowboys in franchise history in "Driven: The Jason Witten Story."

This film, written and produced by Jeff Sullivan, Lindsay Draper, Kevin Timmons and Roxanne Medina, and edited by Steve Sullivan, debuted in the first season of "Deep Blue" on

The film focuses less on the many accomplishments of Witten, who is likely headed to Canton, Ohio one day. But it tells the story that Witten rarely shared in the public – a story of abuse, a story of perseverance and above all, a story of redemption.

While Witten's time with the Cowboys is now over, his legacy will continue to carry on forever.

Check out what made the future Hall of Famer "Driven" to succeed.
