Promiseland takes a fresh, visceral approach to exploring the intimate journey and personal evolution of Ja Morant, a remarkable athlete who comes of age during his rookie season in the NBA. The story unfolds in real time, shining a spotlight on the evolution of an extraordinary young man working hard to achieve his dreams of basketball superstardom. A small-town kid is thrust into a brave new world, made up of big business, power players, a small-market NBA franchise and a ravenous public spotlight, all while the radically unprecedented twists and turns of the 2019-2020 season come into focus. Promiseland is created and directed by filmmaker Dexton Deboree, director of the doc Unbanned: The Legend of AJ1 previously. Produced by DLP Media Group (30 for 30's Lance, Rodman: For Better or Worse), Falkon Entertainment, RTG Features, Interscope Films and Waffle Iron Entertainment. Part one of the Promiseland docu series premieres on Crackle streaming starting June 3rd, and part two debuts June 17th next month. Game on?
