Arketype Entertainment released a trailer for its documentary "Champion: The Legacy of Jackie Nitschke" online at www.jackie-nitschke-the-documentary.com.

The documentary tells the story of Jackie Nitschke, who struggled with alcohol abuse throughout her husband Ray's career with the Green Bay Packers, and how her struggle with alcohol led to a legacy of change and empowerment for people battling addiction in Green Bay and around the nation.

The film explores the challenges associated with being the wife of a football star at a time when women were sidelined and substance abuse was a taboo subject and features candid interviews with Bart and Cherry Starr, Chester Marcol, Paul Hornung, and Beverly Lofton, as well as author and addiction expert William C. Moyers and daughter Amy Nitschke.

The full documentary will debut in 2014.
