Today, Prime Video announced a June 17 premiere date and released the official trailer for The Sessions: Draymond Green, a gripping personal look inside the mind of NBA superstar Draymond Green. The special presentation is a co-production of Amazon Studios and Religion of Sports, and is directed by Religion of Sports’ Gotham Chopra.
The Sessions: Draymond Green explores the mind of one of today’s most polarizing athletes—wildly talented NBA icon Draymond Green, known as much for his intense demeanor on the court as for his playmaking abilities. The renewed focus on athletes’ mental well-being, in addition to their physical health, means figures like Green are looking for ways to make big changes in their lives. The Sessions pairs Green with spiritual-and-wellness legend Deepak Chopra and master healer and well-being educator Devi Brown, renowned experts who have dedicated their lives to understanding the human condition. Together, they’ll have to answer a critical question: Can this future hall-of-famer learn to train his mind as well as his body?
“I’m excited for the world to see me go on a journey they could’ve never imagined me embarking on,” said Draymond Green. “Meditation, Zen, and mindfulness bring a new balance for me. The Sessions starts a deep dive into the mind of me, Draymond Green—the player, the father, and the person. I hope you enjoy this journey as much as I did!”
“I’ve had a lot of existential angst the last week as I’ve wrestled with the conflict I have between rooting for my hometown team, the Boston Celtics, and my friend, partner, and subject of The Sessions—Draymond Green,” said Gotham Chopra. “Fortunately, we have produced something special that deals with this sort of emotional explosion in the cauldron of competition. On a more serious note, we couldn’t have built The Sessions around a more appropriate subject—someone fiery, impetuous, talented but also thoughtful, curious, candid, and super smart. No matter the outcome of the series and no matter what the commentators say, I believe Draymond now has the inner arsenal to navigate success and failure, winning and losing, because he has a stillness inside him that can’t be swayed. I can’t wait to see how audiences will react.”
The special presentation is executive produced by Draymond Green, and Religion of Sports’ Gotham Chopra, Tom Brady, Ameeth Sankaran, and Giselle Parets, with Chopra also serving as director. The Sessions: Draymond Green is a co-production from Amazon Studios and Religion of Sports.
