Coincidences of life, Hollywood is a more conducive place to start business than Washington, Houston or Oklahoma. Let them tell if not Russell Westbrook, who since his arrival at the Los Angeles Lakers has already had time to rub shoulders with all kinds of celebrities, appear in videoclips with LeBron James and, today, announce the production of a documentary about his figure. The piece will be called ‘Passion Play: Russell Westbrook‘and will cover the career of the point guard from his childhood in California to his arrival at the Lakers. The premiere will be next October 15 in Showtime, channel owned by the CBS.
Actually, the first sentence of the previous paragraph is a bit tricky, because this same year Westbrook has already produced a successful documentary. ‘Tulsa Burning: The 1921 Race Massacre‘ is a film that traces the racial tragedy of Tulsa, an area near Oklahoma that suffered one of the most bloody racist episodes in recent history in the United States. The footage has been nominated at the last Emmy gala.
Westbrook has been very satisfied with the work done with his audiovisual autobiography exercise. “I am proud to show viewers a glimpse of who I really am. There are many misunderstandings with me, but I am prepared to show my story and my path with the fans. Gotham Chopra, documentary director ‘Muse’ About Kobe Bryant, he is the co-director of the project.
