Apple TV+ takes bite out of Stephen Curry doc from Ryan Coogler & Peter Nicks

Apple TV+ has commissioned a one-off documentary exploring the breakout story of NBA superstar Stephen Curry.

Underrated hails from Apple Original Films, A24 and Unanimous Media and follows Curry’s historic success during the 2008 March Madness NCAA Tournament, as well as his record-shattering and game-changing playing style that turned him from an overlooked prospect to an NBA legend.

The documentary culminates in his incredible 2022 run to a fourth NBA title and his first NBA Finals Most Valuable Player trophy.

Peter Nicks (The Force, Homeroom) serves as director, with Nicks and Ryan Coogler (Creed, Black Panther) from Proximity Media producing alongside A24. Proximity Media’s Sev Ohanian and Zinzi Coogler (Judas And The Black Messiah, Space Jam: A New Legacy) are executive producing. From Stephen Curry’s Unanimous Media, Erick Peyton (Benedict Men, Jump Shot) produces with Jenelle Lindsay co-executive producing on behalf of the company.

The project hails from A24 and Unanimous’s first look deal. A24 documentaries include Val, about actor Val Kilmer; Amy, on singer-songwriter Amy Winehouse, and the recently launched season two of design docuseries Home, with Apple TV+.

Underrated will join Apple TV+’s sports slate including docuseries and documentaries featuring the real-life stories behind the biggest names in sports such as Greatness Code, They Call Me Magic and The Long Game: Bigger Than Basketball.
