Generation Iron Producing ‘Vindicated,’ A 3-Part Series On American Basketball Players Playing Abroad
Vindicated will be an intimate look into the fascinating world of international basketball – chronicling the lives and careers of American players competing abroad
Generation Iron Network and Vindicated Sports LLC is producing a 3-part series titled Vindicated. The mini-series event will be taking a deep look into the lives of American professional basketball players who travel, live, and compete abroad.
Though invented and typically known as an American professional sport, basketball has grown across the world. The sport has long since been organized into the International Basketball Federation – which includes 212 national federations under its ranks.
While many international teams have home grown domestic players – many athletes have also traveled abroad to play in various countries to compete with the best teams in the world.
Vindicated focuses on both male and female American professional basketball players who have made the journey abroad to live and compete within the world of international basketball. Production has taken place across numerous countries including Turkey, Slovakia, Lebanon, Iraq, and more.
The series will take an uncompromising look at the challenges of playing overseas and the personal stories that have led these professional players into the international basketball market. It will also explore how basketball differs in various international nations compared to the NBA.
Vindicated will also examine how the current political tensions across the globe affect players and federations within international basketball – including the ongoing conflicts within the middle east.
Appearances include Edgar Sosa, James Gist, Lindsey Pulliam, Adrienne Ross, Kyle Hines, and Chris Wright alongside various other expert panel appearances discussing the world of international basketball.
Vindicated is being directed by Vlad Yudin (Generation Iron, Ronnie Coleman: The King, Bigorexia, Dorian Yates Original Mass Monster) and produced by Yudin, Edwin Mejia Jr. (Generation Iron, Ronnie Coleman The King, The Hurt Business, CT Fletcher My Magnificent Obsession), and Michael Creppy Jr. Creppy will also be executive producer.
The series is still currently in production and is tentatively slated to release later this year.
