I wrote a documentary that premieres in June at Tribeca. It’s called Fate of a Sport.
Executive Produced by LeBron James and Maverick Carter, produced by the amazing Matt Tolmach (Spiderman, Jumanji, Venom, etc) and put together by many other incredibly talented folk.
“I thought documentaries were non-fiction, what does it mean to ‘write a documentary’?” you ask? Well, it sort of depends on the project. But in this case, there was a version of the film and it needed restructuring, and a lot of additional interviews. So as the writer, I wrote an outline that detailed the scenes and overall structure, interviewed a bunch of people, and helped oversee the editing to make the finished film.
It’s a great story about an incredible athlete:
After enduring eleven years as one of the most dominant and controversial players in a professional lacrosse league that was anything but professional, Paul Rabil decides to take the game into his own hands. Partnering with his brother Mike Rabil, the Rabil brothers attempt to raise the capital, poach the top players, fight off lawsuits, and persevere through a global pandemic to change the trajectory of professional sports by launching the Premier Lacrosse League. To complicate matters, Paul must navigate the politics of playing in the league that he also runs.
