“It’s Time,” the SEC Storied film about the life and death of Ole Miss football player Chucky Mullins, premieres tonight on the SEC Network at 7 p.m.

The 90-minute documentary weaves together the stories of Mullins and Brad Gaines, the Vanderbilt receiver Mullins was tackling as he suffered a paralyzing injury in 1989. Mullins died less than two years later.

The film was screened Tuesday in Nashville for an audience that included Gaines and former Ole Miss head coach Billy Brewer.

“It’s a healing piece,” Brewer said.
