A new Vince Carter documentary is set to be aired in October.
Screen Media announced the acquisition of all rights to the documentary film "Vince Carter: Legacy," which will premiere on the Crackle Plus Networks as an original title in October.
Set to illustrate Carter's magnificent career, the documentary will highlight every bit of the player dubbed "Air Canada" and "Half-Man/Half-Amazing." From winning Rookie of the Year, to the unforgettable 2000 Slam Dunk Contest, to winning gold at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney (including his historic dunk over 7-foot-2 big man Fredric Weiss), the eight-time All-Star will have his story told on the big screen, showcasing his impact on the sport of basketball in Canada and around the world.
Carter's 22 seasons in the NBA are the most in league history, and his career will be told through never-before-seen footage and exclusive interviews with NBA stars such as Julius Erving, Charles Barkley, Allen Iverson, Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Kidd, Dominique Wilkins and Kenny Smith, according to Deadline.com.
"This all-access documentary honors his accomplishments while exploring the complex emotions of a farewell season unlike any other and the life transition that lies at its end," Deadline stated in its release.
Carter gave "THINK450," the content and partnership engine of the National Basketball Players Association, exclusive access to document his historic 22nd and final NBA season.

"Vince Carter: Legacy" isn't the first basketball documentary that will be released on Crackle, either. The network has also premiered docuseries that include other NBA players such as Memphis Grizzlies star and 2020 Rookie of the Year Ja Morant, Boston Celtics forward and former top-ranked college player Romeo Langford and a story on former Toronto Raptor and current LA Clippers forward Serge Ibaka's journey from The Republic of Congo to the NBA.
Get ready to see an up close and personal view on Carter's illustrious career and life, going well beyond his freakish athleticism and electrifying dunks.
