Jimmer Fredette’s Reality Show Begins
Jimmer Fredette is about to become a player in the NBA but the Glens Falls High School graduate is already a player on the reality television scene.
Today, “Jimmer Fredette – Follow Jimmer” began airing in webisodes on a dedicated YouTube channel and is also being syndicated on SI.com.
This documentary (produced by Tupelo-Honey Productions) chronicles the 2011 Naismith and John R. Wooden Award winner as he prepares for his transition from college player to the NBA.
This past college basketball season, the BYU guard led the nation in scoring with 28.9 points per game. He won National Player of the Year honors from the Associated Press and SI.com as well as the Adolph Rupp and Oscar Robertson trophies. His outstanding season made him one of college basketball’s biggest stories over the last decade.
“Follow Jimmer” chronicles the 30 days leading up to the NBA Draft and will include exclusive access to Jimmer and his family as well as reaction to NBA team meetings and workouts, interaction with his agents at Octagon, personal training and fitness, appearances, and private meetings with family and friends.
The show will also include extensive coverage of the Fredettes at the NBA Draft and exclusive home video footage shot by the Fredette family.
The reality series will include 75 webisodes (each running about 4 minutes). Following the NBA Draft, THP will produce a long-form documentary for broadcast or theatrical release.
