Wade, Chance the Rapper producing documentary on HS basketball in Chicago
Dwyane Wade and Chance the Rapper are teaming up as executive producers on a new documentary about high school basketball in their hometown of Chicago.
The film, titled "Shot in the Dark," follows the basketball team at Orr Academy High School as they compete and face systemic injustices in the city. It's the second film in a new FOX Sports documentary series called "Magnify," which also includes "89 Blocks," produced by LeBron James' digital media company UNINTERRUPTED and Sports Illustrated.
"Basketball empowered me to overcome the challenges of growing up on the south side of Chicago," Wade said in a press release. "The odds were stacked against me, and the game changed the course of my life. It's important to share these true stories of triumph to inspire the next generation to achieve their dreams when faced with life's obstacles."
"Shot in the Dark" airs in February 2018 on FOX.
