20th Television is set to start filming a brand new series for Disney+ this June called “The Crossover”, which is based on the children’s book of the same name by Kwame Alexander
According to “The DisInsider”, this new drama series will be directed by George Tillman, Jr, who previously directed the 20th Century Studios film “The Hate You Give”.
Here is the description for this upcoming series:
The Crossover is the coming of age story of basketball prodigy twins Filthy (aka Josh) and JB who learn that – even though they have so much that binds them together – growing up is all about discovering what makes us unique. Josh and his twin brother Jordan are awesome on the court, but Josh has more Han basketball in his blood, he’s got mad beats, too, that tell his family’s story in verse, in this fast and furious middle grade novel of family and brotherhood from Kwame Alexander. Josh and Jordan must come to grips with growing up on and off the court to realize breaking the rules comes at a terrible price, as their story’s heart-stopping climax proves a game-changer for the entire family.
This new upcoming Disney+ series will be produced by Bob Teitel and Jay Marcus. The new series will be written and produced by Kwame Alexander, who wrote the book, along with Damani Johnson, and Dee Johnson.
With filming only just getting ready to start, no release date has yet been revealed for when it will arrive on Disney+.
