Watch the Trailer for New High School Football Documentary ’89 Blocks’ Executive Produced by LeBron James
LeBron James — alongside his childhood friend and American businessman Maverick Carter — has executive produced a new documentary in partnership with Fox Sports Films. Titled 89 Blocks, the picture centers around the East St. Louis (Ill.) High Football team and their championship season from 2016.
These kids ultimately grow up a city with the nation’s highest per capita murder rate, while 43.5% of its 26,922 residents live below the poverty line. So for most of them — as could be expected — all they want is out, and many see sports as that vehicle for removal.
Above, you can get a feel for what to expect from 89 Blocks, which is a part of Fox Sports Films’ new documentary series, Magnify. The picture is then scheduled to premiere in-full November 26 on Fox at 4 p.m. EST.
