Danny Pudi and Marquette Go To The Sundance Film Festival

Yes, that Danny Pudi. Yes, that Sundance.

3/12/14 UPDATE!  ESPN has posted the movie, which you can find here.

Today the Sundance Film Festival released the list of short films that will be screened as part of the festivities in January in Park City, Utah. 66 short films were selected out of a record 8,161 submissions, and there's one in particular that's of interest to Marquette fans.

Marquette alum Danny Pudi of 'Community' fame has teamed with ESPN's 30 For 30 series to produce a documentary short about Marquette basketball, specifically one part of Marquette basketball history. I'll let the official description speak for itself:

Untucked / U.S.A. (Director: Danny Pudi) — This documentary explores the iconic "untucked" jersey worn in 1977 when Marquette University won its first and only national college basketball championship. It was designed by one of Marquette’s players, Bo Ellis, under the fearless leadership of Coach Al McGuire.

How friggin' great is that?

Pudi's film is one of just 14 documentary shorts to make the cut. ESPN says that we can expect to see 'Untucked' released on their website in March.

Congratulations to Danny!
