Celebrities and NBA stars bring new mockumentary series to life
Some of your favorite celebrities and sports figures are bringing a mockumentary series to life -- and it is a must-watch.
The first episode of the twelve-episode scripted comedy series will be available exclusively on go90 on Wednesday, Nov 2, and all new episodes will be released every Wednesday and available to stream for free only on go90.com or the go90 app, available for iOS or Android.
"The 5th Quarter" tells the greatest untold and untrue stories throughout the history of sports. The series stars various comedians, actors, professional athletes and broadcasters playing both themselves and fictional characters. Series notables include JB Smoove, Blake Griffin, Mark Cuban, Kenny Mayne, Jerry O'Connell, George Lopez, Adam Pally, Chris Parnell, Jeff Ross, Metta World Peace, Ahmad Rashad, and Chandler Parsons.
"This series combines the worlds of premium comedy and sports better than ever before. We're very proud to work exclusively with go90 and with such a diverse all-star cast who were able to bring these untold stories to life in their sometimes inspiring, shocking and comedic ways. Whether the biggest sports fan or not at all, this is a show for everyone," said OBB Pictures' President/CEO, Michael D. Ratner, who directed eight of the twelve episodes.
In the premiere episode, "But I'm Just A Little Boy", Kenny Mayne leads us through the heartbreaking story of 7-year-old Clif Cliff Adele (Blake Griffin) who was brought to America by his uncle Brian (Donnell Rawlings of "Chappelle's Show"). After setting the sports world on fire with his unprecedented play, Clif Cliff leads his team to the 2002 AAU Under 8 National Tournament championship game where he faces off against a young Karl-Anthony Towns (Towns make an appearance as his older self).
After the stunning victory, NBA teams take notice, including Mavericks owner Mark Cuban (playing himself), however scandal breaks out when it is discovered that Clif Cliff is not a 7-year-old boy, but rather a 30-year-old man.
So, this is pretty much NBA gold.
go90 is currently delivering over 250 hours of exclusive original series from some of the industry's most talented and interesting studios and creators -- and this certainly adds to the list.
