JULY 24 – HBO’s THE GOLDEN BOY *Documentary Premiere*
- After its world premiere at the 2023 Tribeca Festival, HBO’s two-part Original documentary THE GOLDEN BOY, directed by award-winning filmmaker Fernando Villena, is available for streaming on Monday, July 24 at 9 p.m. ET. By the age of 19, Oscar De La Hoya was an Olympic boxing gold medalist, a multi-world title-winning professional boxer, a hometown hero, and a role model to his Mexican-American community in East Los Angeles. Nicknamed “The Golden Boy,” De La Hoya – with his good looks, electric charisma, and heartfelt story of winning Olympic gold for his dying mother – rocketed to national prominence as a superstar both in and outside the ring. But all was not what it appeared to be behind that polished facade. Told in De La Hoya’s own words through a series of candid interviews with him and those closest to him, and featuring rare archival footage, THE GOLDEN BOY peels back the layers of this celebrated yet complicated figure, exploring his triumphs and turmoil to reveal a man struggling to come to terms with lifelong demons, and the impossible burden of a nickname he couldn’t live up to.

The film is a portrait of how local residents – and the thousands of vacationers who flock to Cape Cod every summer — grapple with this alarming new reality while following the science to investigate what marine life can tell us about the health of the ocean. AFTER THE BITE premieres Wednesday, July 26 at 10 p.m. ET on Crave.
