Under Armour Basketball is launching a new series titled Home Court: Baltimore.
The inaugural season kicks off in UA’s backyard and explores what makes basketball a global sport and how the culture surrounding the game is different in every city across the world.
Directed by Shomi Patwary—a film-maker and co-founder of illusive media who’s worked with the likes of the A$AP mob, Beyoncé and Pusha T—this season dives into the city of Baltimore, where UA is headquartered, to spotlight locations and key players that have a significant impact on the culture of the game.
Across four episodes, our host Sarunas Jackson—star of HBO series Insecure and former hooper—meets up with local people at iconic sites in the community including local basketball legends Aquille Carr and Terry Hosley along with the St. Frances Girls team and Team Thrill, a program founded by NBA legend Will Barton; Cloverdale Courts and Mike Tribb’s Barbershop for the ‘Cruddy’ shape up; A$AP Ant and Nacho Bangers’ creator Eric Williams; TT the Artist, Bond Street District and DJ Blaqstarr to delve into key aspects surrounding the game.
Here is a quick breakdown of what you can expect:
Episode 1: Ball-timore, where to hoop and how they ball
Episode 2: Camera Ready, style on and off the court
Episode 3: Charm City Eats, local eats around the neighborhood
Episode 4: That Bmore Sound, the music scene coming out of the city
Home Court: Baltimore debuts on Friday, July 13 with all four episodes airing at 2pm EST on Under Armour Basketball’s Youtube channel.
