“Legacy is a part of Vudu’s commitment to invest in creating premium and compelling original content for families to enjoy together,” said Jeremy Verba, vice president and general manager of Vudu. “We’re thrilled to collaborate with Whistle and Dwyane Wade, and bring this motivational series to life.”
“I’m proud to executive produce Legacy and bring my son’s unique athletic journey to other aspiring young athletes,” said Dwyane Wade. “I hope this docuseries leaves viewers feeling inspired through showing the hard work and dedication needed to turn your dreams into reality.”
The docuseries is produced by Whistle, directed by Emmy Award winner Jonathan Hock and will also have Mark Caiardi in the executive producer chair and follows the children of some of your favorite athletes as they look to carve out their own legacies in their respective sports. The series will follow Zaire in his senior year of high school as he prepares to elevate his game for the NCAA stage.
The docuseries will be eight episodes in length and will also show the life rising track and field star Vashti Cunningham, the daughter of star quarterback Randall Cunningham, as she preps for the 2020 Olympics. Also included will be the sons of Evander Holyfield, Evan and Elijah, the former who also boxes, while Elijah has hit the NFL and is a member of the Philadelphia Eagles.
