discovery+ Greenlights Docuseries on Three-Time Gold Medalist Snowboarder Shaun White Ahead of 2022 Olympic Winter Games

With Unprecedented Access and Never-Before-Scene Archival Footage, UNTITLED SHAUN WHITE DOCUSERIES from Mandalay Sports Media Will Launch Exclusively on discovery+ This Year

(February 3, 2022 - New York, NY) As the 2022 Olympic Winter Games are set to begin in Beijing, discovery+ has given the greenlight to UNTITLED SHAUN WHITE DOCUSERIES, a new docuseries from the award-winning filmmakers behind Trophy and Immigration Nation, Shaul Schwarz and Christina Clusiau, Emmy(R) Award-winning producer Mike Tollin (The Last Dance) and Mandalay Sports Media. With unprecedented access and never-before-seen personal archival footage, the series will be a definitive portrait of three-time Olympic gold medalist and arguably the GOAT in two separate sports - snowboarding & skateboarding, Shaun White. UNTITLED SHAUN WHITE DOCUSERIES will launch exclusively on discovery+ this year.

With compelling personal and professional narratives, the premium three-part docuseries will follow American icon Shaun White and explore his legacy that transcends sports. It is a story that includes childhood struggles with a congenital heart condition, the miraculous development of his unbeatable talent, sacrifices made by his unconventional but remarkably supportive parents, the gutsy move into pro-snowboarding at an absurdly young age, and of course, his glorious exploits at the Olympics, where he holds the record for most gold medals by a snowboarder. The filmmakers have been with White in recent months as he qualifies for this year's games and will be filming with him in Beijing, capturing up-to-the-minute footage as he defends his Olympic title in pursuit of a historic fourth gold medal.

"I'm so thankful to have the opportunity to look back on my career and share my decades-long journey and personal archival footage with discovery+ audiences around the globe. I cannot wait for viewers to experience my path to the 2022 Olympics right along with me," says Shaun White.

"Shaun White's road to domination in the worlds of both skateboarding and snowboarding has been a completely wild, twenty-year ride. We are excited to share his drive, struggles, and triumphs with discovery+ audiences this year," says filmmakers Shaul Schwarz and Christina Clusiau.

"Shaun White's incredible journey has been unprecedented and wildly entertaining, and it deserves to be documented and shared with the world," says Mike Tollin, Executive Producer and Co-chairman of MSM. "We're thrilled to partner with discovery+ to bring viewers the mind-blowing performances and death-defying feats that they know and love from Shaun, while also providing a peek at never-before-seen footage of his early years - before he came to dominate a sport like few athletes ever have."

UNTITLED SHAUN WHITE DOCUSERIES is produced for discovery+ by Mandalay Sports Media, where Mike Tollin and Mason Gordon serve as executive producers. For discovery+, Howard Swartz and Igal Svet are executive producers.
