STARZ and “Uncle Luke” have released the official trailer for their new original docuseries “Warriors of Liberty City.” The series which will make its World Premieres at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival this week will show “Warriors of Liberty City” as the Official Episodic Selections at the festival with a Q&A on Monday, March 12th.
“Warriors of Liberty City,” a docuseries from PGA award-winning director and producer Rosenfeld explores Liberty City – a crime-ridden neighborhood in Miami, Florida that is arguably the NFL’s largest, most successful football factory. The series follows a season with the Liberty City Warriors, a youth football program founded by an unlikely mentor: hip hop pioneer Luther Campbell, better known as “Uncle Luke.” Before Liberty City native Barry Jenkins won his historic Oscar® for Moonlight, the city was best known for producing some of the biggest names in football, including Devonta Freeman, Antonio Brown, Duke Johnson, and Teddy Bridgewater.
It’s a place synonymous with poverty and gun violence, but in the face of incredible challenges and personal tragedy, the Warriors of Liberty City learn to triumph both on and off the football field.
Check out the trailer below.
