Entertainment Editors

ADVISORY...for Tuesday (March 20)

--(ENTERTAINMENT WIRE)

Tuesday, March 20, at Ladera Park

WHO: -- 1994 NFL Hall of Fame inductee Tony Dorsett, who played
 in two Super Bowls, five NFC championship games and four
 Pro Bowls as well as being the NFC rushing champion in
 1982 and winning the Heisman Trophy in 1976.
 -- His son Anthony Dorsett, No. 33 and strong safety for the
 Oakland Raiders, one of the top special teams players in
 the NFL. Anthony was the starting safety in Super Bowl
 XXXIV and played the safety position and on special teams
 for the AFC Champion Tennessee Titans.

WHAT: Guest-star in an episode of Disney Channel's original sports
 series "The Jersey." The episode featuring Tony and Anthony
 Dorsett tapes Tuesday at Ladera Park in Inglewood, Calif.

 In "Basketball Diaries," the jersey jumps Coleman into
 Anthony Dorsett to show him how to reconnect with his busy
 father. Coleman feels his seemingly standoffish dad wouldn't
 like "Slaw," the cool, funny guy he is when he's away from
 home. Although Coleman/Anthony loses intense games of one-
 on-one and HORSE with Tony Dorsett, he realizes it is
 possible to have a better relationship with his dad. Not
 only can Coleman be himself around his dad, he also can have
 fun with him on the court at the Lighter Than Air Parent/Kid
 Basketball Tournament as well as off.

 In Disney Channel's original sports series "The Jersey," a
 tired old football jersey is passed down to Nick from his
 deceased grandfather, but this is much more than your
 ordinary jersey -- it's a magical portal into the world of
 sports. Astonishingly, its wearer is transported off the
 couch, onto the field and into the cleats, shoes or skates
 of sports heroes.

 9 a.m. to noon

WHERE: Ladera Park
 Ladera Park Avenue
 Inglewood, Calif.
