The trailer for the upcoming documentary about Chicago’s Orr basketball academy was released today (Feb. 13) and gives an inside look at the rigorous, in-your-face training regimen coach Lou Adams dishes out to the young team in order to keep them focused and away from the swap that is violence in Chicago.
Directed by Dustin Nakao Haider, the clip gives a quick overview into the basketball program, head coach Adams, and one of the team’s’ star players, Tyquone Greer. The nearly two-minute visual ends with Greer getting shot in the leg after scoring a game-winning three in a game — indicative of the successes and tragedies the boys face every day in their violence-ridden community.
“40 boys on my team don’t have fathers. 40 guys that depend on me everyday,” Adam says of his team. Greer also explains in the trailer that he knows his only way out would be to go to college.
The documentary will appear on FOX as part of the “Magnify” docu-series, which takes a deeper look into the lives of athletes on and off the field.
Shot in the Dark premieres Feb. 24 on FOX. Check out the trailer below.
