Toronto - Unobstructed View is thrilled to announce its participation in the hotly anticipated documentary miniseries celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the legendary Summit Series hockey showdown between the legendary first edition of Team Canada and the best of the Soviet Union.

The four-part doc will air on the CBC on the anniversary of the eight game series and will feature never before seen footage, brand new interviews with the legends from both perspectives and all kinds of cultural artifacts from the period. Unobstructed View’s Jonathan Gross is on board in a production capacity and UV will be bringing out a limited edition Steelbook of the series jam-packed with hours of bonus features that will make a terrific gift for the hockey nut come the holiday season. Only 5000 will be manufactured and numbered to make them extra collectable. The street date will be November 15 and pre-orders will be taken once the package is complete and pricing is finalized. Unobstructed View is also on board as the exclusive worldwide distributor.

"We have been involved in a lot of archival hockey content over the years from our Canada Cup retrospectives to the many years we worked with Don Cherry but this is the icing on the cake,” says company founder and president Jonathan Gross. "I can’t wait to relive what was a magical moment in the history of Canada and be part of the celebration."
