It’s a series of documentaries that has told the stories of some of the biggest sports legends, and now the story of the 90's era Buffalo Bills will play out in the film “Four Falls of Buffalo.”

The ’30 for 30’ film, which debuts Saturday on ESPN, highlights the roller coaster ride of the Bills during four straight Super Bowl appearances.

The nearly two hour documentary features recent interview from Bills greats including Steve Tasker, Jim Kelly, Andre Reed and Thurman Thomas.

In addition to interviews, producers from ESPN and the NFL scoured their archives and the archives of 7 Eyewitness News to tell the story of the Super Bowl era team.

“If we had made it in 1999, this film might’ve been a tragedy,” the film’s director Ken Rodgers told 7 Eyewitness News.  “But today I hope it’s a film of both tragedy and triumph.”

At the private premier of the “Four Falls of Buffalo” at the historic North Park Theatre in North Buffalo, several of the film’s key players spoke about what they hope the fans take away from the documentary.

“That camaraderie we had you really don’t see it in sports and we had that,” former Bills wide receiver told 7 Eyewitness News.
