Discovery+'s 'Legacy: In the Shadow of Greatness' Doc Series Trailer
"The legacy really speaks for itself." Discovery has revealed the first offiical trailer for a documentary series about athletes titled Legacy: In the Shadow of Greatness. It seems a bit strange that they'd decide to make an entire series about nepotism, but these three kids literally are "living in the shadow of greatness" no matter how you frame it. The six-part series from 11-time Emmy Award winning filmmaker Jonathan Hock follows the athletic pursuits of the children of sports icons Dwyane Wade, Evander Holyfield, and Randall Cunningham as they attempt to make their own mark on the world. It focuses on Zaire Wade, Evan Holyfield, and Vashti Cunningham. This is a rather lackluster trailer so far, not that these people aren't working hard, but it just seems so obvious. Of course parents want their kids to be the best, especially children of famous athletes. Plus we've already seen so many stories before about parents pushing too much.
