Have you ever wondered what a day in the life of Jimmer Fredette is like? If you said yes, then your prayers have been answered. A television production company has announced that they have signed an agreement with Fredette to produce a reality show and a documentary about the reigning Naismith and Wooden Award winner.
THP will follow the drama of Jimmer’s every move as he transitions from great college player to NBA professional including: agent interaction, financial planning, training and nutrition, appearances, and private moments all the way up to the NBA Draft itself. THP will package the exclusive content for multi-purpose use across several distribution outlets. The digital packaging could include daily 2-4 minute webisodes, a daily video blog and weekly recap features. Following the thirty days, THP will produce a long-form documentary for broadcast or theatrical release.
The idea of following a prospect around during the weeks leading up to draft day is nothing new. But with Fredette being arguably the prospect that provokes the widest range of opinions, a better show might be to follow around the scouts evaluating Jimmer to see if and how their opinion of his draft stock changes as we head toward June.
