[via press release from Showtime]

SHOWTIME RELEASES OFFICIAL TRAILER FOR NEW DOCU-SERIES SHUT UP AND DRIBBLE PREMIERING ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 3 AT 9 PM ET/PT

"Hi, my name is Gotham Chopra and I am the director of SHUT UP AND DRIBBLE and had the privilege of working with SpringHill Entertainment, as well as my executive producing partners Maverick Carter, Rich Paul, and Lebron James and an incredibly talented and passionate team of creators on this series over the last 2 years. It's hard to imagine we're just days away from the premiere of the first episode on SHOWTIME and I am very eager to see how people respond to the series. A little "behind the scenes" - where this series started and where it ended up was not entirely a straight line. That's mostly to do with the fact that the last two years of American history have been anything but a straight line and we've adapted with the times. It's synchronistic that we are releasing this series three days before the midterm elections and it's my hope that we will contribute to the dialogue that we sorely need in this country about the importance of civic engagement, cultural inclusion, why sports matter (beyond wins and losses), and persistence in the face of struggle. Below is a link to the trailer for the series:

I hope you'll watch it, share it and talk about it with everyone you can. Considering the NBA's multi-generational influence on culture - from music, to fashion, consumer behavior and politics, my take is that basketball is truly America's Game - maybe you'll agree. And oh - please vote on November 6th. It matters." ~ Gotham Chopra

ABOUT THE DOCUMENTARY SERIES

Narrated by acclaimed sports journalist and commentator Jemele Hill, the highly-anticipated three-part documentary series SHUT UP AND DRIBBLE is a powerful inside look at the changing role of NBA athletes through the lens of our shifting cultural and political environment. Hill is among one of the many luminaries featured in the documentary that includes former NBA players, executives, sports journalists and pop-culture icons. SHUT UP AND DRIBBLE is directed by Gotham Chopra and executive produced by LeBron James, Maverick Carter and Chopra.

SHUT UP AND DRIBBLE chronicles the modern history of the NBA and its players, including the 1976 merger of the freewheeling ABA and the more conventional NBA. The league soon became an incubator for many of its top athletes to grow their brands beyond the court, becoming powerful players in commerce and fashion, and transcending the game to become cultural icons. The poignant series charts this evolution through the experience of basketball players, who by taking control of their own destinies have helped to bring about social change and use their platform for a broader purpose.

SHUT UP AND DRIBBLE is a presentation of SHOWTIME Sports Documentary Films and a Religion of Sports/Dirty Robber production in association with SpringHill Entertainment and Warner Horizon Unscripted & Alternative Television. The series is executive produced by LeBron James, Maverick Carter, Gotham Chopra, Rich Paul, Martin Desmond Roe, Chris Uetwiller and Datari Turner.

SHUT UP AND DRIBBLE Premieres November 3 at 9 PM.
