Watch the trailer for Apple TV+ docuseries ‘They Call Me Magic’ about the legacy of basketball legend Earvin Johnson

Just before the end of 2021, Apple TV+ announced that it had landing the streaming rights to a brand new four-part documentary series called They Call Me Magic. It’ll focus on the life and times of the basketball legend Earvin “Magic” Johnson. And it’s set to premiere in April.

Leading up to that, we finally get our first look at what the docuseries will offer next month. The new documentary is only four parts, which is sort of incredible considering the life that Magic Johnson has lived. As noted in the description accompanying the trailer, Johnson started off from “humble beginnings,” and, since then, earned his way onto the legendary Dream Team, and has become a titan in the business industry.

Here’s that description:

Earvin ‘Magic’ Johnson is an icon for the ages—from humble beginnings to the Dream Team to business titan. Featuring candid interviews with teammates, rivals, family, friends, and more, this docuseries charts the life and career of an icon.

Over the course of his life, Magic became a voice for those with HIV and changed the entire conversation around it. During his time in the NBA, Magic earned five championship rings with the Los Angeles Lakers. In more recent years, Magic has become a successful entrepreneur and activist. And that’s really just the tip of the iceberg, all things considered.

The upcoming docuseries will be directed by Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), with cinematographer Rachel Morrison (Black Panther) behind the camera, and Dirk Westervelt (Ford v. Ferrari) handling editing duties.

They Call Me Magic starts streaming on Apple TV+ Friday, April 22, 2022. Are you going to be checking it out?
