HOSTED & EXECUTIVE PRODUCED BY INSIDE THE NBA’S KENNY “THE JET” SMITH AIRING ON TNT 10:30pm PT / 1:30 a.m. EST
TNT has announced it will be airing special for the basketball series “The Pathway” TONIGHT at 10:30pm PT / 1:30 a.m. EST. The special is set to air during TNT’s first round coverage of the 2022 NBA Playoffs. Directed by James D Stern, The Pathway is produced by Endgame Entertainment (Last Chance U and Last Chance U: Basketball), Film 45 (Being Serena), and executive produced by two-time NBA Champion and Inside the NBA’s Kenny “The Jet” Smith; and prolific producer/director Deon Taylor (The Intruder). In its entirety, The Pathway, is a seven part series.
The Pathway follows emerging basketball stars – Jonathan Kuminga, Jalen Green, Isaiah Todd, and Daishen Nix – as they skip college and join the NBA’s G League Ignite, with their eyes set on eventually making it to the NBA.
The Pathway chronicles each player’s dream of reaching the NBA, documenting the extraordinary sacrifices they and their families make, along with the hard work they put in and immense pressure they face to beat the incredible odds and succeed. Kuminga moved from the Congo when he was just 14 years old; Green, the former No. 1 high school player in the nation from Fresno, California, has been in the headlines since 7th grade; and top high school recruits, Todd and Nix, decommitted from storied NCAA programs to join G League Ignite. The road is not easy, from competing against older, stronger, more experienced professional NBA players and other talented prospects to impress NBA scouts and General Managers during the NBA Draft Combine, to the anxiety of Draft Night and the added pressure of shining in the NBA Summer League, fans witness what it takes for four young ballers to make their wildest dream of playing in the NBA a reality.
The hour-long episode will air following TNT’s Inside the NBA postgame at 10:30pm PT / 1:30 a.m. EST.
