HBO Releases Trailer for Craig Carton Doc 'Wild Card: The Downfall of a Radio Loudmouth'


It’s not often they make a documentary about the backup third baseman for the Phillies.

Jokes aside, HBO is releasing a Craig Carton documentary entitled “Wild Card: The Downfall of a Radio Loudmouth” next month, and the first trailer for the doc has dropped.

Numerous WFAN personalities are interviewed for the documentary, but the trailer itself focuses on one moment that is seen as a catalyst in Craig’s spiral: the moment that Carton guaranteed Boomer Esiason he could turn $10,000 into $25K at the blackjack table – and did that and more, turning it into 80 grand.

“As it turned out, that was the worst thing that ever happened,” Jerry Recco says in the documentary.

Check out the trailer below, and for more, watch “Wild Card: The Downfall of a Radio Loudmouth,” which premieres Wednesday, Oct. 7, at 9 p.m. on HBO and HBO Max.
