Constant Beta Motion Picture Company, Creative Control, and Abramorama are collaborating for the North American distribution of “The First to Do It,” a documentary about Earl Lloyd, the first African-American to play in the NBA.
Abramorama plans a wide theatrical release for the film in February.
Through the voices of current NBA stars, the documentary examines the legacy of desegregation in America and the ongoing role basketball has played in America’s inner cities.
Made in full cooperation with Lloyd family, “The First to Do It” will make its world premiere this week at the Hamptons International Film Festival.
