"Mountain tops are small and the air is thin for a reason," Ellis says, "because you're not supposed to dwell on top of the mountain." And Staley states what we all need to hear: "Sometimes you have to take steps that make you uncomfortable to understand where you are and where you want to be."
The Playbook is produced by the SpringHill Company, Delirio Films, and Boardwalk Pictures and directed by Sarah Feeley, Josh Greenbaum, John Henion, and Alexandria Stapleton. Among the list of executive producers is legend LeBron James. Keep reading to find out a little more about the incredible coaches being featured in this series and to watch the full trailer.
