Crackle has teamed up with Screen Media to release its upcoming original Anything is Possible – The Serge Ibaka Story launching exclusively on the platform August 1. The film is produced by Lebron James’ company UNINTERRUPTED and debuted at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival.
The film follows Toronto Raptors’ power forward as he makes a return to his hometown in the Republic of Congo after winning the 2019 NBA Championship. Ibaka takes viewers through the streets where he grew up, lost his mother, and the basketball club where he found his passion for the game.
“I wanted to tell my story in a unique and different way,” said Ibaka. “I will never forget where I come from, and my journey to becoming an NBA Champion has been hard to believe. I think everyone can enjoy this film, but I will be especially proud if I can inspire at least one kid, in Congo or anywhere in the world, to give their all to reach for their dreams.”
“We are very proud to bring Anything is Possible – The Serge Ibaka Story to our Crackle audience,” said Philippe Guelton, president of Crackle Plus. “This stirring documentary will not just entertain our sports-hungry viewers, it will inspire viewers to witness how Serge overcame so many obstacles to achieve his dreams.”
“This marks UNINTERRUPTED Canada’s first international distribution agreement and we couldn’t be prouder to have partnered with a world class streaming service like Crackle Plus,” said Vinay Virmani, chief content officer of UNINTERRUPTED Canada. “I’m excited that this inspirational story will be enjoyed by a new and expanded global audience.”
