The Show Is Based On Durant’s Youth Basketball Years

Kevin Durant‘s story seems to be headed for the small screen as Apple has announced they’ve ordered a drama series based around his life. According to Variety, the series called Swagger is inspired by Durant’s younger years as a basketball star. It will explore the AAU basketball world in Washington D.C., going into the lives of the athletes, their families and the coaches who walk the line between dreams, ambition, opportunism and corruption. The series was put into development at Apple back in February and it’s being produced by Imagine Television, Durant’s Thirty Five Ventures, and CBS Television Studios. Reggie Rock Bythewood will be the writer, director, executive producer and showrunner for the series. He previously collabed with Imagine on the Fox limited series he created Shots Fired. Bythewood’s creds also include co-writing the screenplay for the Notorious B.I.G. biopic Notorious.  Durant will serve as the executive producer for the show along with Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo from Imagine. Rich Kleiman, Bythewood and Sarah Flynn will also serve as producers for Thirty Five Ventures. Currently, Durant is continuing his run with the Golden State Warriors and he’s won numerous accolades in his basketball career. Along with being a two-time Olympic gold medalist, he has also won the NBA’s Most Valuable Player award, been named NBA Rookie of the Year, and he’s a nine-time NBA All Star. Swagger was an early project Apple put into development and their upcoming T.V. streaming component has picked up a few more shows since then. It’s currently gearing up for projects like a morning show drama starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon as well as a reboot of Amazing Stories.  There’s currently no premiere date for Swagger, but we’ll keep you updated. Until then, what do you think of this new venture? Tuning in or nah?
