Derek JeterI’ll be honest—the extent of my baseball knowledge comes from Rookie of the Year. But Derek Jeter 3K, the in-the-works TV-movie the Yankee shortstop’s mission towards his three thousandth career hit (I know that’s impressive thanks to Bernie Mac) is something that breathes intrigue.

The project is backed by HBO Sports and MLB Productions, and is expected to air on HBO within weeks of the accomplishment.

In addition to covering Jeter’s experiences, the film will include interviews with many of Jeter’s colleagues, associates and friends, including Hal Steinbrenner, Joe Torre, Mariano Rivera, Joe Girardi, Curtis Granderson, Dave Winfield, Minka Kelly and Billy Crystal—I know those last two.

The special will be available on HBO during a prime time slot, as well as on HBO On Demand and HBO Go.
