Kevin Durant’s autobiographical drama ‘Swagger’ has a trailer.
On Thursday, Apple TV+ debuted the first trailer for the drama Swagger. Kevin Durant, Reggie Rock Bythewood, and Brian Grazer create the show, which was inspired by Durant’s adolescence.
Jace Carson, a 14-year-old basketball player, is played by Isaiah Hill. Carson aspires to be scouted by the NBA.
Ike, played by O’Shea Jackson Jr., is a former player who is now a coach. Crystal, another teenage basketball player, is played by Quvenzhane Wallis.
The trailer depicts activity on the court as well as drama on the streets. The police stop players on the street, and protesters hold signs that read “I can’t breathe,” as Eric Garner and George Floyd did.
