Talent is given. Greatness is made. Swagger premieres October 29 on Apple TV+ apple.co/_Swagger
Jace Carson (Isaiah Hill) is the best player in the region. But to achieve his dream of going pro, he must battle opponents on and off the court with the help of his coach, Ike (O'Shea Jackson Jr.). Inspired by the experiences of Kevin Durant, Swagger is about what it takes to make it.
Swagger explores the world of competitive youth basketball, and the players, their families and coaches who walk the fine line between dreams and ambition, and opportunism and corruption. Off the court, the show reveals what it’s like to grow up in America.
The new series is led by an ensemble cast of stars including O’Shea Jackson Jr., Isaiah Hill, Shinelle Azoroh, Academy Award-nominee Quvenzhané Wallis, Caleel Harris, James Bingham, Solomon Irama, Ozie Nzeribe, Tessa Ferrer, Tristan Mack Wilds and Jason Rivera.
Swagger is created by Reggie Rock Bythewood, who also writes, directs and serves as showrunner and executive producer alongside Kevin Durant and Brian Grazer. The series is produced for Apple by Thirty Five Ventures, Imagine Television Studios, CBS Studios and Undisputed Cinema. Also serving as executive producers are Rich Kleiman, Francie Calfo, Samie Kim Falvey and Samantha Corbin-Miller.
