WATCH THE TRAILER FOR THE SPORTS DOC 'WE COULD BE KING'

Watch 'We Could Be King' on Video On Demand starting August 12!

The whole city is counting on us quitting. Get with your brothers, pull 'em up; we're in this together!

(Click the image above to watch the trailer.) Germantown and Martin Luther King High Schools were bitter rivals for over 40 years. This past year, a budget crisis caused Philadelphia to lay off over 4000 employees and close 37 schools, including Germantown High. Now Germantown must merge with their former rival, King. Against overwhelming odds, a 27-year old first time head coach and a new principal struggle to inspire young men from difficult circumstances to come together and lift each other toward a better future.

Two-time Emmy® nominated director Judd Ehrlich uses an intimate, unflinching lens to tell a story much larger than the Martin Luther King Cougars. As the threat of more drastic budget cuts and the loss of funding for athletics looms large, WE COULD BE KING examines the crisis of education in urban America, and celebrates the power of sports to bring young people, neighborhoods, and a city together.

WE COULD BE KING will be available on Video On Demand and your favorite digital distributors (iTunes, Amazon etc) on August 12, 2014.
