If sports mixed with a little bit of drama is your jam, then we’ve got the perfect show for you to add to your summer watch list—Baselines, a new series that showcases just how much basketball can be more than a game. In fact, for some it can be a matter of life or death. Starring Jarrett Ellis, Derrick A. King, Malik Yoba, Myles Brewer and Felicia Pearson, Baselines tells the story of Jamiel Chambers, a blue-chip high-school basketball recruit from Los Angeles looking to escape the desperate poverty that has berated inner-city America.
The series was executive produced by NBA star Derek Fisher, and much of the main character's story draws parallels to the real-life experiences of the five time champion. To hear about the series, we caught up with Fisher and actor Malik Yoba to chat about their experiences putting it together.
