Underrated was acquired by Apple Original Films from A24 through its first-look deal with Curry’s multimedia company Unanimous Media. Wakanda Forever director Ryan Coogler will also serve as a producer under his Proximity Media banner. Peter Nicks (Homeroom) has been tapped to direct.
The documentary will look back at Steph’s standout performance during the 2008 NCAA Tournament with Davidson College and lead up to his fourth NBA title win last season, along with his first NBA Finals MVP trophy. Underrated will highlight how “his record-shattering and game-changing playing style turned him from an overlooked prospect to an NBA legend.”
Among his other notable achievements, Stephen Curry surpassed Ray Allen to break the NBA’s all-time record for three-pointers made in a game against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden in December.
