Durant launched the series in 2018 with the help of his business partner, Rich Kleiman. Hosted by ESPN’s Jay Williams, the series looked at “the evolution of sports business through the minds of athletes, sports executives and tech moguls alike.” During its run, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, Portland Trailblazers guard C.J. McCollum and Stephen A. Smith appeared on the show.
This news comes as Durant shifts his focus to his next a project, Swagger. The upcoming Apple TV+ show stars O’Shea Jackson Jr. as a formal basketball star turned youth coach. Earlier this week, Academy Award nominee Quvenzhané Wallis announced that she would be joining the show.
