Time Inc.’s Sports Illustrated TV (SI TV) is teaming with Mandalay Sports Media and Triple Threat TV to produce a basketball-focused documentary.
We Town, which will debut on SI TV’s streaming platform, features two NBA hopefuls, Mo Bamba and Cam Reddish. The pair have chosen to play at the elite Westtown School because they were drawn to the charismatic and devoted coach, Seth Berger.
As Berger guides his team, the coach and his athletes must stick together through family tensions and the inevitable disruption of recruiters and opportunists looking to make money off the talent.
We Town will have its feature-length film debut in 2018.
SI TV, which launched in November on Amazon Channels, offers sports lovers original programming curated through the Sports Illustrated lens. The streaming service offers a mix of original documentary series, weekly studio shows, acquired sports movies, documentaries and TV shows. SI TV joins People TV as Time Inc.’s second streaming network.
