The trailer has dropped for Disney+’s LeBron James-produced series, The Crossover, starring Derek Luke, Jalyn Hall and more.
The series is based on the best-selling book by Kwame Alexander.
Here's the series' official description:
The Crossover is a heartwarming, poignant story about a family of basketball players. The series introduces teen brothers Josh (Jalyn Hall) and Jordan (Amir O’Neil) Bell, widely considered basketball phenoms. Through his lyrical poetry, an adult version of Josh, aka Filthy (Daveed Diggs), narrates the story of he and his brother’s coming-of-age, on and off the court, as their former professional basketball player father adjusts to life after basketball and their mother finally pursues lifelong dreams of her own.
In addition to Hall, O’Neil and Diggs, the series also stars Derek Luke, Sabrina Revelle, Deja Monique Cruz, Trevor Raine Bush, and Skyla I’Lece as Alexis. Phylicia Rashad guest stars as the boys’ grandmother.
The Disney+ series is produced by 20th Television. Executive producers include Kwame Alexander, Damani Johnson, and Kimberly A. Harrison; the trio also serves as co-showrunners for the series. LeBron James, Maverick Carter, Jamal Henderson, and Lezlie Wills will executive produce through The SpringHill Company. Also serving as executive producers are George Tillman Jr., Bob Teitel, Robert Prinz, and Jay Marcus of State Street Pictures, and Daveed Diggs, Todd Harthan and Erin O’Malley.
All episodes of The Crossover begin streaming on April 5 on Disney+.
