HBO Sports and Vox Media Studios have teamed up on LEVEL PLAYING FIELD, a sports documentary series featuring a range of stories that illuminate how public policies have contributed to inequities in the sports landscape and society at large. The four-part documentary series debuts TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14 (8:00 - 8:30 p.m. ET/PT), with half hour episodes airing subsequent Tuesdays at the same time. LEVEL PLAYING FIELD will be available on HBO and to stream on HBO Max.

LEVEL PLAYING FIELD examines how multi-billion-dollar industries in and out of sports have historically underpaid their most valuable assets, politicized community-based initiatives, and stifled the voices of athletes of color. Featuring stories and insights from sports and policy changemakers including the WNBA's Elizabeth Williams, U.S. senators Cory Booker and Raphael Warnock, Rep. Joaquin Castro, and sports journalist Jemele Hill among others, the dynamic four-part series looks at the far-reaching twin impacts of legislation and activism as they intersect with sports.

This was a pretty interesting episode. I remember scoffing at “midnight basketball”, wondering why these young people weren’t home instead of running around at midnight, but it apparently worked until it got caught in the middle of the debate of the 1990s crime bill
