Apple scores a drama series based on the life of Kevin Durant

Apple continues its efforts on having a good portfolio of origins shows and it just added another to its portfolio. The company is developing a drama-based series on the early life of NBA superstar Kevin Durant.

Apple is developing a TV drama called Swagger, which is inspired by Kevin Durant’s childhood. A report from Variety tells us that the show will “explore the world of Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) basketball and the lives of the players, their families, and coaches.”

The drama series will be written and directed by Reggie Rock Bythewood, who is best known for writing the 2009 Notorious B.I.G. Biopic Notorious, and creating the recent Fox limited series Shots Fired. The show will be produced by Imagine Television and Durant’s Thirty Five Media. Durant will serve as an executive producer for the drama series.

“I am honored to be partnering with Kevin Durant and working again with Reggie on Swagger,” Grazer said in a statement. “These are two people who are superstars in their fields, and bring with them an authentic voice to the project. After Friday Night Lights, I had wanted to make another sports themed series for television, and when I met with Kevin, I knew Reggie would be the perfect person to create this world with compelling characters and a story worth telling.”

At this time, it’s unclear when we will get to see this drama series. Apple has already added several shows to its lineup, so it may be a while before the company is satisfied enough to add it to its offerings.
