Halle Berry!!! (~10,000 Impressions on LinkedIn)

When my partner, Basil Iwanyk, and I first started dreaming about what a sports-centric content studio should look like – one that could make feature films, scripted and unscripted television, as well as branded content and podcasts – we knew the magic formula would have to be how to most effectively combine the best of sports with the brightest of Hollywood. Simply, great IP + incredible storytellers = success.

Further, our goal is to always tell stories that mattered – stories that would move people – hence, our ethos quickly became “Sports. Culture. Stories” – which also became our mission as a company. From the onset, we’ve sought stories to tell that weren’t just entertaining, but meaningful and inspirational as well.

What I never imagined is that one or our initial efforts would not only be so commercially viable, but would accentuate such essential and timely themes like female empowerment, resiliency, perseverance, and strength. Having Halle Berry as a brilliant first-time director, as well as her Oscar-worthy self as the lead character, make this project incredibly special.

So, now I’m really looking forward to watching this amazing film on Netflix in coming months!
