Johnston, Iowa - Iowa Public Television has announced the premiere of Terry, a documentary chronicling the life and career of Iowa wrestler Terry Brands. The program will debut in a one-time only streaming event on Iptv.org Wednesday, November 30, at 7 p.m.

Terry follows the decade-long Olympic journey of the legendary wrestler, offering unprecedented access inside the life and mind of one of the sport's most iconic and enigmatic figures. This retrospective examination of Brands' successes and failures is set against the exhilarating backdrop of the 2015 U.S. Open in Las Vegas, as Brands guides protege and Olympic hopeful Anthony Ramos in his second year of international competition.

The documentary features an exclusive interview with Brands' coach and Olympic gold medalist Dan Gable. Terry also reveals never before seen home movies of wrestling prodigies and brothers Terry and Tom Brands, as they tear their way through collegiate competition.
