This new five-part docuseries was produced in partnership with BET Studios and the Klutch Sports Group. It follows six NBA hopefuls “on their journey to the draft and off-season,” according to the BET press release.

It continues:

“Klutch Academy” documents Klutch Sports Group — led by CEO Rich Paul — as they prepare six college basketball prospects for pro careers. These talented athletes possess the potential to be stars in the league but will need to work through areas of improvement on and off the court to achieve success and one day reach superstardom. Each one-hour episode will candidly reveal what players and agents experience in the process leading up to the Draft—and showcase that Klutch is more than an agency… it’s a tight-knit group dedicated to developing young men for life in the NBA and beyond.

“Klutch Academy” will give audiences a “courtside” seat to the progression these young athletes undergo as they transition from college into the pros — from signing with an agent to training for pro competition to Draft day anxiety and off-season preparation to managing personal relationships and the challenges young Black men in their unique circumstances face. The show will also pay tribute to Terrence Clarke, who tragically passed away the day after signing with Klutch. The cast features a roster of talent who recently had their lives changed being drafted into the NBA.

“With Kenya Barris, Rich Paul, Mike Tollin and Jon Weinbach all on board for ‘Klutch Academy,’ we couldn’t have hoped for a better inaugural project for BET Studios,” said Aisha Summers Burke, Executive Vice-President and General Manager of BET Studios in a statement. “The BET Studios venture is all about giving creators an opportunity to tell stories that have yet to be told, and Klutch Sports has a remarkable background and history that we know will resonate with our audiences, which is why we’re so glad the series found its home right here on BET.”

“These young men work their entire lives to get a shot at becoming a professional athlete, and at Klutch we invest the time and care to help them succeed not only as players but as human beings prepared to meet all of life’s challenges,” added CEO Paul. “It’s an honor to work with Kenya and BET to share our rookies’ powerful stories, and I’m excited for audiences to get a glimpse at the incredible work my team does every day to help athletes achieve and sustain success.”

“There is no denying the impact that Rich has had. He and the Klutch Team have pushed boundaries and completely shifted the narrative,” Barris said. “And while buzzwords like disruptor and super-agent are fitting, it’s the work that they do with these young men, behind the scenes and off-the-court, that is the most impressive and I’m excited for viewers to get a glimpse beyond the headlines into that part of their story.”

“Klutch Academy” airs Tuesdays at 11 p.m. Eastern and Pacific times on BET.
