Film and television producer Datari Turner continues a year of successful ventures with the Showtime documentary Shut Up & Dribble, which he serves as executive producer on along with Lebron James’ SpringHill Entertainment. The three-part series premiered November 3 and will air its second installment this Saturday, November 10 at 9pm ET/PT – https://www.sho.com/shut-up-and-dribble
Shut Up & Dribble, which borrowed its title from conservative commentator Laura Ingraham’s remarks to James earlier this year, provides a powerful inside look at the changing role of athletes in our fraught cultural and political environment, through the lens of the NBA. The series chronicles the modern history of the league, and how it became an incubator for many of its top athletes to grow their brands beyond the court and become cultural icons. By taking control of their own destinies, basketball players have helped to bring about social change and make their own statements in the current political climate. Former ESPN personality Jemele Hill narrates.
“I’m honored to be a part of such an inspiring and groundbreaking series,” says Turner. “Sports and basketball, in particular, have helped to bring about incredible social and economic change in our culture. Sports icons like Lebron James and others, continue to lead by example, making powerful statements for change in our current political climate. My hope is that everyone will be inspired and impacted from watching ‘Shut Up & Dribble’ in some way or another.”
Shut Up & Dribble airs Saturdays at 9pm ET/PT on Showtime
