PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Michael Vick is taking his road to redemption to television.
Vick tells his side of how he got involved in a dogfighting ring that sent him to prison and temporarily halted his NFL career as part of a series that debuts next month on BET. Vick says the 10-part series will show he's a changed man from his tragic fall from stardom "that was all my fault."
Vick tells The Associated Press that walking over the burial spots of some of the dogs killed as part of his dogfighting operation was when he "really realized all the wrong that I did."
Vick served an 18-month prison sentence for operating a dogfighting ring. He returned to the NFL this season with the Philadelphia Eagles.
"The Michael Vick Project" premieres Feb. 2.
