International Olympic Committee

13 Sep 2022 – Executive produced by Olympic champions LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, the new documentary film tells the inspiring story of how the USA’s most elite players united to overcome historic challenges and win gold at Beijing 2008. The trailer is released today ahead of the documentary’s 7 October launch worldwide exclusively on Netflix.

‘The Redeem Team’  features never-seen-before basketball footage from the Olympic archives, alongside a host of behind-the-scenes material from NBA Entertainment. Combined with new interviews with the legendary athletes and coaches who were part of the iconic basketball story – including Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Mike “Coach K” Krzyzewski – the documentary offers an original and fascinating portrait of team-building and how it launched a new era of Team USA Basketball at the Olympic Games.

Produced by the Olympic Channel along with the Kennedy/Marshall Company and Mandalay Sports Media, in association with 59th and Prairie Entertainment, UNINTERRUPTED, NBA Entertainment and USA Basketball, the film is directed by Jon Weinbach. ‘The Redeem Team’ is the first collaborative feature documentary between the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and Netflix.
