It's no secret that Dwight Howard loves being in front of the camera and getting attention. As part of the pitch process for Dwight to stay in Los Angeles, the Lakers were in talks to develop a reality show through Time Warner if he re-signed. The Rockets responded by offering Howard a vehicle through Comcast SportsNet Houston.
It seems his dream of having his story told on camera is coming true as EPIX will release a documentary that details the big man's rise to superstardom. With focus on the recruitment process in Houston the film will also delve into the Atlanta native's youth.
Dwight Howard has teamed with EPIX to offer an exclusive look into his life and path to becoming a megastar. A big part of the original documentary, EPIX Presents Dwight Howard: In the Moment, includes footage of Howard during his recruitment and decision to come to Houston, so that should be of particular interest to Rockets fans. It will also retrace his youth and career path and will help answer the question, ‘who is the real Dwight Howard?’
“The 2013/14 season is a pivotal year in my professional career,” Howard said. “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.”
