Watch 'Collision Course,' Billy Corben's New ESPN '30 For 30' Short, On The Murder Of Don Aronow (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Miami filmmaker Billy Corben, the director behind the 2006 must-watch doc "Cocaine Cowboys" and the spirited football flick "The U," has returned to ESPN's "30 for 30" series with another riveting tale involving drug smugglers and murder in 1980s Miami.

Once again, the Magic City couldn't be a more potent mix of glamour, connections, cash, and crime. "Collision Course: The Murder of Don Aronow" tells the story of the legendary boat racer who also earned the nickname "King of Thunderboat Row" as the world's leading designer and builder of offshore high-performance powerboats.

Aronow's famous clientele included George H. W. Bush, Evel Knievel, the Beatles, and King Juan Carlos of Spain. And then there were the drug smugglers, who made up a majority of Aronow's business and are believed responsible for gunning him down outside his North Miami Beach marina -- though questions still remain.
