    This is the final entry in ESPN’s summer documentary series “Nine for IX.” “Branded” looks at how the media and Madison Avenue focus on appearance more than accomplishment when it comes to female players. Women athletes are expected to be sexy as well as good at their sport in order to get attention. Among those interviewed: Chris Evert, Mary Lou Retton, and Gabrielle Reece. The film is from Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady, whose previous work includes “Jesus Camp,” a look at the young Christian Right that was nominated for an Oscar.

    The March 9 p.m., Channel 2
