ESPN ‘Wubble’ documentary to air Thursday


An inside look at the 2020 “Wubble” is almost here. 

The all-new ESPN documentary 144 is set to premiere Thursday, giving a look at what it was like for the athletes to play in the WNBA bubble in Bradenton, Florida from July to October 2020.

The documentary also touches on social justice, as players address the police killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. 

In the trailer, Los Angeles Sparks pro (and Women’s National Basketball Players Association President) Nneka Ogwumike says, “The unity that we were able to experience as players is something that we won’t forget and we can lean on as we move forward.”

She adds, “I’d do it all over again, ’cause it’s bigger than me. It’s bigger than my teammates.”

Chiney Ogwumike, WNBA All-Star for the Los Angeles Sparks and ESPN commentator, had a hand in making the film as its executive producer. 

Directed by Lauren Stowell and Jenna Contreras, the documentary premieres May 13 at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN.
