The Redeem Team Trailer

"We had to figure out how to become a team." Netflix has revealed an official trailer for an inspiring sports documentary film titled The Redeem Team, telling the remarkable story of the 2008 U.S. Olympic Men's Basketball team. From the filmmakers behind the acclaimed doc series The Last Dance comes this new look at how the "The Redeem Team" set a new standard for American basketball. With an all-star team by Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony + LeBron James, the 2008 US men's Olympic basketball team had everything to lose. And everything to prove. The rest is history!! We already know the result, but this is the story of how they got that Gold. The doc includes Wade, LeBron, Carmelo, Carlos Boozer, Chris Bosh, Dwight Howard, Jason Kidd, Chris Paul, Mike "Coach K" Krzyzewski, and archival interviews with the late Kobe. This seems similar to the Miracle hockey story but for basketball in 2008. Looks like a stellar doc.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Jon Weinbach's doc The Redeem Team, from Netflix's YouTube:
