Directors Judd Apatow and Michael Bonfiglio collaborated on the documentary, Doc & Darryl. The ESPN 30 for 30 film explores the lives and careers of former New York Mets superstars, Dwight “Doc” Gooden and Darryl Strawberry.

Doc and Darryl were the biggest stars on the 1986 Mets squad that won the World Series. The young duo quickly became superstars in New York but lost it all fast when both of their lives spiraled out of control.

For the documentary, the pair reunites at a diner in Queens and look back at their rocky careers and lives. Doc & Darryl includes interviews with celebrity fans and former teammates of Gooden and Strawberry.

Doc & Darryl debuts on ESPN July 14th.
