Prime Video orders Allen Iverson doc

March 15, 2024

Prime Video has greenlit a new feature-length documentary from Shaquille O’Neal’s Jersey Legends and Stephen Curry’s Unanimous Media about the inspiring journey of former NBA superstar Allen Iverson. The documentary will premiere exclusively on the streaming platform in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide on a date TBC.

“I’m ready to tell my story my way, authentic and unapologetically. I look forward to people seeing a side of me they haven’t seen before,” said Iverson.

The untitled Iverson documentary is a feature-length film about the life of basketball legend and global sensation Iverson, whose authentic voice and unapologetic expression of style paved the way for future generations and revolutionised the culture of the NBA. From his origins in Hampton, VA, to his ascent as one of the most tenacious basketball players of all time, Iverson embraced his individuality both on and off the court. Through unprecedented access and personal stories, along with intimate interviews with family, friends, and fellow NBA players and coaches, Iverson shares a more reflective side of his present-day self, as he takes us on a journey through his storied history into the present day where he realises his cultural impact long after his playing days have come to an end.

“Allen was a pioneer in the world of sports and entertainment, “said O’Neal. “His cultural impact was bigger than basketball and this documentary sets out to properly define his legacy.”

“We’re excited to join forces with Prime Video, Shaquille O’Neal, and Jersey Legends to tell the incredible story of Allen Iverson, a revolutionary figure with deep influence on and off the court,” added Curry and Erick Peyton of Unanimous Media. “This project provides us the opportunity to pull back the curtains on Iverson’s storied career, legacy, and impact through meaningful storytelling that will appeal to audiences worldwide.”
