THE SCHEME
March 31, 2020  | By David Bianculli

HBO, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
This is the last day of March. If you’re still missing March Madness, and the absence of this year’s NCAA college basketball tournament, this HBO documentary may make you miss it a little less. It looks at an FBI sting that targeted, and caught, some college coaches suspected of funneling money and opportunity to prospective and star players. The FBI doesn’t come off as a crack team, but the coaches fare even more poorly. In video and audio footage, we see them denying even knowing some individuals, then hear surreptitiously recorded audio of them joking and scheming with the people in question. For a full review, see David Hinckley's All Along the Watchtower
