This new series is being co-produced by Uninterrupted (the athlete empowerment brand founded by James and Maverick Carter) and Religion of Sports (which was co-founded by Brady, Gotham Chopra and and NFL legend Michael Strahan).
Season 1 of the show will highlight James, Brady, Morgan, world’s fastest man Usain Bolt, five-time Olympic champion swimmer Katie Ledecky, prolific surfing champion Kelly Slater, and iconic snowboarder Shaun White.
