“I could not ask for more collaborative and creative teams to work with than those at ESPN Films and Marvel,” said Drath. “It was truly amazing to work with such incredible athletes for this series and to learn of their moments of self-discovery.”
The series kicks off with a film on Colin Kaepernick that will be shown during the July 10 episode of “His & Hers” that will be telecast from San Diego Comic-Con with Jemele Hill and Michael Smith at 2 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
