The life and career of NBA Hall of Famer Ervin ‘Magic’ Johnson will soon be streaming on Apple TV+. The four-part docuseries will cover the Los Angeles Lakers legend’s accomplishments and achievements on and off the court with unreleased archive footage and interviews with Magic himself. 

Drafted out of Michigan State in 1979, Johnson played 12 seasons in the NBA but his career was cut short due to a diagnosis of HIV. He missed four seasons and attempted a comeback during the 95-96 season, and played 32 games before retiring. Recognized as one of the greatest guards and players in NBA history, Johnson was a 12-time All-Star, 10-time All-NBA, 3-time NBA Finals MVP, 3-time NBA MVP, 5-time NBA Champion, and recently, he was named a member of the NBA 75 Anniversary Team, and many more accolades.

After his retirement, Magic became a spokesperson for HIV/AIDS awareness. He continues the fight by educating people about the disease through the Magic Johnson Foundation, which he established in 1991. The Foundation serves over 250,000 individuals each year through different services and programs.

A release date has not been announced but the series is a New Slate Ventures and XTR Production. Apple is hoping that the series is a slamdunk as they venture into the world of sports. 

Since launching the streaming service, Apple has been attempting to grow the platform with more sports content. The streaming service is a favorite to land NFL Sunday Ticket, which the league has recently considered as “a streaming product.”
