SHOWTIME SPORTS(R) ANNOUNCES SIX-PART "SHUT UP AND DRIBBLE" SHORT FEATURE SERIES

Featuring Never-Before-Seen Footage From the 2018 Showtime(R) Sports Documentary Films Series

NEW YORK - October 9, 2020 - SHOWTIME Sports today has announced a short feature series from the makers of SHUT UP AND DRIBBLE, the 2018 Showtime Sports Documentary Films series from executive producers LeBron James and Maverick Carter of The SpringHill Company and Emmy Award(R) winning director Gotham Chopra of Religion of Sports. The new, six-part series features bonus footage and never-before-seen elements from the original series, which spotlights the changing role of basketball and its athletes in advancing social justice and civil rights. Each five-to-seven-minute short, voiced by journalist Jemele Hill, will be released on the SHOWTIME Basketball YouTube Channel and air interstitially on SHOWTIME over the next two weeks.

Expanding on subjects and themes from the original three-part docu-series, the features reveal insights from Craig Hodges' failed protest following the Rodney King incident, ['The Mission,' available now], as well as Oscar Robertson's landmark demand for free agency and social change from the perspective of traditionally white team ownership and more. Key voices throughout the feature series include Kendrick Lamar, Bob Costas, Arsenio Hall, Jesse Jackson, Mark Cuban, Adam Silver and Steve Kerr, among others from basketball's progressive history.

"During the making of SHUT UP AND DRIBBLE, this talented team of filmmakers produced a vast array of important and powerful material spanning decades," said Stephen Espinoza, President and General Manager of Sports and Event Programming, Showtime Networks Inc. "Unfortunately, not all of that material fit into the original three-hour series. Today, we revisit this material and highlight some of the more relevant and timely unaired segments so that we might, in a small way, contribute the ongoing social justice conversation and help shape our path forward."

In collaboration with the release of the six short features, an encore presentation of the original three-part SHUT UP AND DRIBBLE series, which was nominated for three Emmy Awards in 2018, is available on all SHOWTIME ON DEMAND(R) platforms and will air on SHOWTIME on Saturday, October 10, beginning at 1 p.m. ET/PT.
