“The Michael Vick Case,” a one-hour special that tells the full story of Vick’s federal dogfighting drama.

*In the kickoff to a brand new series “Animal Witness,” Animal Planet presents “The Michael Vick Case,” a one-hour special that tells the full story of Vick’s federal dogfighting drama.

Premiering Sunday, Aug. 24, at 10 p.m., the investigative report offers an in-depth look at the NFL quarterback, the law enforcement officers who broke the case and the dogs who were traumatized in the dog fighting scenario.

The underworld of dog fighting is spotlighted, as well as the rehabilitation of Vick’s dogs under the care of some very dedicated dog lovers. Viewers will also witness rare underground dog fighting videos and see interviews with two of Vick’s boyhood mentors.

“Animal Witness: The Michael Vick Case” also aims to “challenge the misconceptions about pit bulls and shows viewers that vicious, fighting dogs can be transformed into lovable family pets.”

“It’s imperative to bring viewers compelling TV that exposes a horrific issue like the Michael Vick case and highlights the aftermath of its investigation,” says Marjorie Kaplan, general manager of Animal Planet Media. “Bringing to the forefront the entire case with firsthand accounts and rarely seen footage, Animal Planet hopes that this eye-opener has a strong impact on our audience and on dogs’ lives.”
