EPIX PRESENTS DWIGHT HOWARD: IN THE MOMENT 

AN EXCLUSIVE LOOK AT THE LIFE OF NBA ALL-STAR DWIGHT HOWARD 

The Original Documentary Makes its World Television Premiere on November 12 at 8PM ET/PT

New York, NY (November 5, 2014) – Premium entertainment network EPIX will provide basketball fans courtside seats to Dwight Howard In the Moment, an EPIX Original Documentary that follows Dwight’s path from a small-town kid becoming a seven-time NBA All-Star and three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year, to his fall from grace and road to redemption. Dwight Howard In the Moment makes its World Television Premiere on Wednesday, November 12, 2014 at 8pm ET/PT.

The number one pick in the 2004 NBA draft, straight out of a tiny high school in Atlanta, Georgia, Dwight joined the Orlando Magic and began a meteoric rise, quickly becoming one of the top 10 most recognizable athletes in the world and earning a reputation as charismatic, intensely competitive, and unwaveringly loyal.

For the first time, viewers will see how Dwight, known for his smile, dunks, Superman cape, and charity work, found himself in uncharted waters. From his glory days with Orlando and his season-ending back surgery, to his tumultuous year with the L.A. Lakers, to his fresh start in Houston, Dwight was tested physically, mentally, and emotionally. Dwight Howard In the Moment takes us through these key moments, showing us how he emerged from his ordeals a more mature, confident player and person.

Today, Dwight is back, most notably with his dominant performance in last year’s tough playoff series, and his continued pursuit of a championship with the Rockets.

“Dwight Howard is one of the biggest names and greatest talents in basketball,” said Mark Greenberg, EPIX CEO and President. “We are delighted to offer his fans a glimpse into his life beyond what is shown on the court.”

Dwight Howard is the latest sports figure profiled in the “In the Moment” series.  Past athletes include David Ortiz, Amar’e Stoudemire and Lindsey Vonn.  Join the conversation about #InTheMoment on Twitter http://Twitter.com/EpixHD, on Facebook http://Facebook.com/EPIX and on EPIX.com www.epix.com/epix-presents-dwight-howard-in-the-moment.

Premiering spring 2014, the documentary follows Howard during another transitional year in his NBA career and private life.

Dwight Howard commented, “The 2013/14 season is a pivotal year in my professional career.  I am excited about being a Houston Rocket and grateful for the opportunity to be seen in an in-depth manner.  I am happy to be working with the EPIX team, including award-winning documentarian, Ross Greenburg.”

Dwight signed with the Houston Rockets this off-season.    The In the Moment production team was there during the tumultuous times and decision making that took Dwight from the Lakers to the Houston Rockets after the 2013 season and behind the scenes with Dwight in LA, Houston and as he visited his Atlanta home.  Dwight Howard: In the Moment will retrace his youth and give viewers a glimpse into the difficult decisions he has made during his glory days in Orlando, his uneasy exit, his back surgery, tumultuous year in Los Angeles and his new lease on life in Houston.

 

EPIX Presents Dwight Howard: In the Momentis produced by legendary sports producer Ross Greenburg and is the third of EPIX’s “In the Moment” series.
