Tuesday TV: When the Mets Were Good

Jimmy Kimmel and his Cousin Sal Iacono are among the co-producers of the new two night documentary in the series “30 for 30” (ESPN, 8 p.m.) 

“Once Upon a Time In Queens” follows the stories of the 1968 New York Mets featuring old footage and interviews with Keith Hernandez, Darryl Strawberry, Dwight Gooden, Mookie Wilson and Lenny Dykstra. The film, directed by Nick Davis (who did “Ted Williams: The Greatest Hitter Who Ever Lived”), it concludes Wednesday at the same time. 

Another new sports documentary series premiering tonight, “Level Playing Field” (HBO, 8 p.m.) is a four-part series that looks at big league exploitation of poor communities or athletes of color, starting with a midnight basketball program that began in Glenarden, Md. It continues weekly. 

Netflix returns to the interactive storytelling with a faux nature adventure, “You vs. Wild: Out Cold” (Netflix, streaming) starring Bear Grylls, who supposedly gets amnesia and audience members choose his moves. 

Winners are named in the season finale of “Lego Masters” (Fox, 8 p.m.).

“America’s Got Talent” (NBC, 8 p.m.) begins its own finale week, with the last performances by finalists. Results come tomorrow.
