E:60, ESPN's prime-time newsmagazine featuring profiles, investigations and cutting-edge stories on emerging and established sports has made the leap into 3D. Last night ESPN aired in 3D “The Great Throwdini” Dr. David Adamovich, the world's fastest knife thrower.


Robert Abbott, senior coordinating producer said “We want people to feel like they are right there, and 3D is another tool.” Incorporating cutting-edge technology makes viewers feel like they are part of the story.
