David Ortiz: The Big Papi Story captures the spirit of Boston, a city with no shortage of sports icons, and celebrates the rise of a man from the Dominican Republic who willed himself to greatness — and who, in the process, changed the culture of an entire city. 
In addition to Ortiz’s successful playing career, the series (Executive Produced by Emmy Award winner Zak Levitt and narrated by Michael Chiklis) will examine pivotal moments in his life off the field, from his difficult assimilation into American culture, to the sudden and tragic loss of his mother, to the raw emotion he shared with Hub fans following the tragic Boston Marathon bombing in 2013.​
