December 4, 2018

Apple Inc. has given Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant the ball on starting up his drama series titled Swagger. The show will be executive produced by the two-time NBA Finals MVP, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Swagger is inspired by Durant's own life, growing up in Washington D.C. as a young, up and coming basketball prodigy. The show will follow families, players and coaches involved in Amateur Athletic Union basketball.

Durant and Rich Kleiman's Thirty Five Ventures will team up with  CBS-TV Studios and Brian Grazers' Imagine Television to produce the drama. Reggie Rock Bythewood, best known for Shots Fired and Notorious will be showrunner and series director.

Swagger will most likely arrive on Apple's upcoming streaming service, which already has over 15 scripted projects ready for the green light.

So far, no launch date for both the series and the streaming service.
