PREPS; Chicago Hoops
PREPS – Chicago Hoops

Our goal was to create a unique and standout reality-based program targeting teens and young adults. We developed and produced PREPS – Chicago Hoops, 65 original half-hour episodes on the lives of three Chicago high school basketball stars, Eddy Curry, Kyle Kleckner, and Sean Dockery. The show telecast daily in over 70 million households across the country on Fox Sports Net. The series significantly increased Teen and Adult 18-34 viewership in its time period and received critical acclaim in the media
