The first season of basketball-focused TV show “Swagger” is set to premiere on Friday, October 29, Apple announced today.
“Swagger” is a drama series inspired by Brooklyn Nets superstar Kevin Durant’s childhood and his experience as a talented youth basketball player courted by recruiters.
Inspired by Durant’s experiences, “Swagger” explores the world of youth basketball, and the players, their families and coaches who walk the fine line between dreams and ambition, and opportunism and corruption. Off the court, the show reveals what it’s like to grow up in America.
The 10-episode series is set to star Isaiah Hill, O’Shea Jackson Jr., and Quvenzhané Wallis. Kevin Durant was involved in the show’s creation alongside Reggie Rock and Brian Grazer.
