'60 Minutes Sports' premiere focuses on Matthew Berry, fantasy football

By Will Brinson | NFL Writer

You probably play fantasy football. If not you're in the minority -- it's become a billion-dollar industry and has helped the NFL's popularity (and profitablity) grow exponentially. Wednesday on Showtime at 10 p.m. ET -- in the show's debut episode -- 60 Minutes Sports will examine the world of fantasy football.

Also featured is Matthew Berry, a.k.a. the Talented Mr. Roto, ESPN's Senior Fantasy Analyst. (Fun story/disclaimer: I got my start writing about sports at Berry's original, much smaller, fantasy-only website.)

Berry is the author of an excellent book, Fantasy Life, about Berry finding a job that shouldn't really exist and featuring hilarious stories of various fantasy leagues.

He's the centerpiece of the fantasy section of the program, which you can preview above.

Set your DVR for 10 p.m. ET on Wednesday night.
