Dwyane Wade gives fans a glimpse into his offseason with Facebook Watch series ‘Backcourt Wade’
Dwyane Wade and Facebook have partnered up for a new series called Backcourt Wade. The five part docu-series is available exclusively on Facebook Watch, the company’s new video streaming platform that was launched at the end of the summer.
Backcourt Wade gives fans a glimpse into the three-time NBA Champion’s offseason before suiting up for the Cleveland Cavaliers. The camera follows Wade as he travels to Paris and Milan for Men’S Fashion Week, plays golf, handles business off the court, and much more.
In a press statement, Wade said:
”I’ve enjoyed partnering with Facebook to share some of my off-the-court moments in this five part series. I hope by sharing some of these candid moments that it helps inspire others to follow their dreams, take risks, challenge yourself to get through life’s obstacles, and take the time to appreciate and enjoy the life you work so hard to build.”
The first episode of Backcourt is available now (November 20th). The other four episodes will be released on consecutive Mondays starting next week (November 28th).
Backcourt Wade is the latest of a string of original sports focused series to appear on Facebook Watch. Other notable sports focused series are Ball In The Family featuring Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Bell and No Script featuring Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch.
