Audiences everywhere, sports fans and beyond, will be rooting for these individuals in their new endeavors.”

The docuseries is created by Paul Hutchens and produced by Neo Studios, New World Distribution and Forever Holiday. Melanie Capacia Johnson and Basons are the executive producers for Neo Studios.
