The Long Game, music supervised by Peymon Maskan / Radish Music, is now streaming on Apple TV Plus.
“We are very proud to have Music Supervised the incredible story of Makur Maker and his journey into professional basketball. Getting to curate music for a modern story as it unfolds in real-time was an exciting creative challenge.”
The series, directed and executive produced by Seth Gordon, follows Makur Maker, the NBA hopeful who grabbed global headlines with his groundbreaking decision to forgo the NBA and play for Howard University, making him the highest-ranked high school player in the modern recruiting era to commit to a historically Black university (HBCU).
The docuseries is an intimate look at Makur’s life as a student-athlete with a dream of making it to the NBA, while unexpected physical challenges and a global pandemic threaten his college career. Off the courts, “The Long Game: Bigger Than Basketball” explores how his journey from fleeing war-torn South Sudan as a child and his tight-knit support system led him to go to an HBCU, and in turn, allowed him to make an impactful statement in the wake of America’s cultural response to the Black Lives Matter movement.
