Under Armour thinks it has a hit with its upcoming series Home Court: Baltimore.
The entire first season of UA’s Home Court will premier Friday, July 13, at 2 PM EST and explore what makes basketball a global sport and how the culture surrounding the game is different in every city.
The series was directed by Shomi Patwary, a filmmaker and co-founder of illusive media, who has worked with Beyoncé, Pusha T, and the A$AP mob. This season dives into the city of Baltimore, where UA is headquartered, to showcase historic locations and key players that have had a significant impact on the culture of the game.
Across four episodes, host Sarunas Jackson — you may know him from the HBO series Insecure (he’s also a former hooper) — meets up with locals at iconic sites within the community including: local basketball legends Aquille Carr and Terry Hosley along with the St. Frances Girls team and Team Thrill, a program founded by NBA player Will Barton; Cloverdale Courts and Mike Tribb’s Barbershop for the ‘Cruddy’ shape up; A$AP Ant and Nacho Bangers’ creator Eric Williams; TT the Artist, Bond Street District and DJ Blaqstarr. Episode breakdown includes:
- Episode 1: Ball-timore, where to hoop and how they ball
- Episode 2: Camera Ready, style on and off the court
- Episode 3: Charm City Eats, local eats around the neighborhood
- Episode 4: That Bmore Sound, the music scene coming out of the city
Home Court: Baltimore debuts on Friday July 13 with all four episodes at 2 PM EST on Under Armour Basketball’s YouTube channel.
