On the same day, Apple is launching two documentary programmes.
At Makur Maker, a high school basketball standout who turned down a future in the NBA in favour of playing for Howard University, this five-part documentary film tells his experience.
Director and executive producer Seth Gordon (Undefeated,” “The King of Kong,” “For All Mankind”) directs and executive produces “The Long Game: Bigger Than Basketball,” which tells the story of NBA hopeful Maker (the highest-ranked high school player in the modern recruiting era to commit to a historically Black university) and his groundbreaking decision to forgo the NBA and play for Howard University (HBCU). An inside look at Makur’s life as a collegiate student-athlete trying to make it to the NBA while dealing with physical setbacks and a worldwide epidemic. A documentary called “The Long Game: Bigger Than Basketball” recounts how his path from escaping war-torn South Sudan as a youngster and his close-knit support system led him to attend an HBCU, which in turn enabled him to make an effective statement in the aftermath of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Sony Pictures Television and Gordon are among the show’s executive producers. Nikki Calabrese and Andrew Fried are also on board. Exhibit A and Boardwalk Pictures are behind the filming of “The Long Game: Bigger Than Basketball,” which will be distributed by Apple.
