For sports fans, Apple TV+ has announced the acquisition of a new documentary “Underrated” on the breakout story of Stephen Curry, the 34-years old NBA superstar.
The upcoming film is hailed from A24 as a part of Apple’s multi-year agreement with the indie film and Tv studio signed in 2018. Previously, the partnership delivered “The Tragedy of Macbeth“, written and directed by Joel Coen and features Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand.

Directed by Peter Nicks, and Ryan Coogler, “Underrated” is produced by Erick Peyton from Stephen Curry’s Unanimous Media and executive produced by Proximity Media’s Sev Ohanian, Zinzi Coogler, and Jenelle Lindsay from Unanimous Media.
The new documentary will narrate Curry’s “historic” success during the 2008 March Madness NCAA tournament. It will also focus on his unique “record-breaking and game-changing” playing style that transformed Curry from an overlooked prospect to an NBA superstar.
The film culminates in his incredible 2022 run to a fourth NBA title and his first NBA Finals Most Valuable Player trophy.
The announcement does not mention the documentary’s release date but said that will be joining its original sports slate that includes real-life stories of the biggest names in sports like:
“Greatness Code,” revealing what truly drives the world’s greatest athletes to succeed featuring Lindsey Vonn, Marcus Rashford and Russell Wilson, among others; the four-part Emmy Award-nominated Earvin “Magic” Johnson docuseries “They Call Me Magic”; “The Long Game: Bigger Than Basketball” about NBA hopeful Makur Maker; and “Make or Break,” following elite World Surf League competitors.
Soon to join this slate will be the recently announced feature documentary about seven-time Formula One world champion Sir Lewis Hamilton; and “The Dynasty” a new documentary event series about the New England Patriots, from Brian Grazer and Ron Howard’s Imagine Documentaries, in association with NFL Films.
