Kevin Durant‘s media company, Thirty Five, is teaming up with ESPN to create a sports business show titled “The Boardroom.” The show will be exlusively on ESPN+. ESPN officially announced the new show on Monday:
ESPN and Thirty Five Media, owned by NBA star Kevin Durant and business partner Rich Kleiman, today announced they are teaming up to create The Boardroom – a new project that will examine the ins and outs of sports business and illuminate the world of sports far beyond what fans ordinarily see.
The Boardroom will bring fans behind the scenes of the modern boardroom, showcasing the evolution of sports business through the minds of athletes, sports executives and tech moguls alike. Each episode will focus on a broad theme, with topics ranging from team ownership to player development and the business of social media.
The series will be six episodes long and will be hosted by ESPN’s Jay Williams, featuring Jordan Schultz as a correspondent. It will also include Durant and Kleiman, who are also the show’s executive producers.
The official launch date is unknown as of now, but “will be announced soon,” according to the press release.
News of this show was first reported by Andrew Marchand of the New York Post.
