Top Women’s Basketball Players Are Included in Documentaries for “Full Court Press”

Leading women’s basketball players including Caitlin Clark, Kiki Rice, and Kamilla Cardoso will be featured in a new documentary series called “Full Court Press,” which is being produced by ESPN, Disney Advertising, and Peyton Manning’s Omaha Productions. The series, which is slated to premiere this weekend on ABC and ESPN+, centers on these athletes’ quest for a national title as it follows them over the 2023–24 women’s collegiate basketball season. Manning stated his excitement in exploring the world of women’s basketball and compared the show to his popular Quarterback docuseries on Netflix. The narrative of “Full Court Press” centers on the experiences of Clark, Rice, and Cardoso while their teams—the South Carolina Gamecocks, UCLA Bruins, and Iowa Hawkeyes—were among the top contenders in the NCAA tournament.

The highs and lows of their travels, from thrilling confrontations to devastating upsets, will be shown to viewers. Notably, the show depicts Clark and Cardoso’s final years in college, giving their stories more emotional depth. Two exceptional players, Cardoso and Clark, squared off in the previous season’s national championship game, with Cardoso’s Gamecocks coming out on top to finish the season unbeaten. But despite being a No. 2 seed, Rice’s Bruins lost to LSU in the Sweet 16. While Rice will be playing for UCLA again in 2024–2025, “Full Court Press” offers a look back at the pinnacle of Clark and Cardoso’s collegiate careers. After the NCAA tournament, the Indiana Fever selected Clark as the number one overall pick in the 2024 WNBA draft, while Cardoso was taken third overall by the Chicago Sky. The docuseries not only documents their journey through the draft process but also aims to highlight women’s sports as a whole and inspire young girls to pursue basketball dreams through the “Inner Baller” ad campaign.

The four episodes of “Full Court Press,” which will air on ABC and ESPN+ and provide viewers with never-before-seen access to Clark, Cardoso, and Rice, will be streamed on Hulu from May 14 to June 12. The show, which aims to highlight the skill and tenacity of female basketball players, should appeal to a wide age range of viewers while also inspiring them.
