Executive producers of the series are Kwame Carter, Lebron James, Damani Johnson, Bob Teitel, George Tillman Jr., Jay Marcus, Kwame Alexander, and Jamal Henderson. As of now, the makers have not released much information about the series as the release date is still far away but, we don’t like disappointing our viewers and have found some information regarding the series.
Let us dig in a little more deeper and know more about The Crossover. Here’s everything you need to know about the series.
The Crossover Storyline
There is not much information revealed other than the story being revolved around Josh Bell, a basketball player. But the story resonates with its novel and, according to the novel Josh Bell and his brother are identical twins. They both love Basketball and have a great passion for it. Things go pretty well until JB gets a girlfriend and starts spending less time with his brother. This makes their relationship knots loose and josh starts getting jealous. Josh gets upset about it and ultimately they get into a fight. Their bond gets almost shattered at this point.
Meanwhile, Chuck’s (their father) health is not doing good because of his lifetime bad earring habits and genetics that made him suffer from heart issues. He starts getting symptoms like cough, nosebleeds, and even minor heart attacks. He immediately gets hospitalized and still begins to get heart attacks. The last heart attack almost made him dead. Watching their father go through this face, the twins realize how they should have each other’s back in this tough situation and be there for each other. That pretty much sums up the story. The story sounds pretty simple but we are sure the show will pop up.
Also, there are chances that they change some parts of the story as the storyline we told you above is based on the novel and not the series. There may be minor changes in the show but overall, the story is about how they deal with love, dedication, and loss in the journey.
