A new series is headed to Revolt TV. "The Crew League" will be a celebrity basketball competition show open to celebrities and artists in the hip-hop industry for a chance to win $100,000 and bragging rights. Half of the monetary prize will be given to the philanthropic organization of the winner's choice. Revolt is a cable network that was founded by Diddy in 2013. According to the network's digital news affiliate, REVOLT.TV:
"The Crew League" Co-Founders Elie Maroun and Jordan A. Stern — who previously worked on Diddy's management team — created the series "to shift entertainment culture" and "showcase not only the celebrity talent involved but also the 'crews' around them." "We had the idea to create this show after a few music industry friends decided to play a couple [of] pick-up basketball games in L.A. After playing with PARTYNEXTDOOR, The Weeknd, and their teams, I realized if we were to broadcast this, people would love it!" Maroun said in a statement. "That's when 'The Crew League' was born."
"The Crew League" was represented by partner Brad D. Rose, chair of the firm's Intellectual Property Group, and partner Eli B. Nathanson, a member of Pryor Cashman's Media & Entertainment, Corporate and Intellectual Property Groups.
REVOLT.TV reports: "The Crew League" makes its debut on Feb. 19 on YouTube, where it will air new episodes every Friday. It will also play on REVOLT TV on Mondays at 10:00 PM ET. The final episodes will air on March 5th – 7th during NBA's All-Star Weekend."
