Full Court Press will give fans a glimpse into the lives of three elite women’s college hoopers at the top of their game.

The series will include exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes footage to document Clark’s, Cardoso’s, and Rice’s 2023-24 seasons, taking audiences from Paris to Iowa City to revisit some of the biggest matchups from the past year.

“As someone who has grown up a devout fan of the women’s game, I am thrilled that we are able to make this show at this pivotal moment in the history of the sport,” Full Court Press director Kristen Lappas said.

“To be able to pull back the curtain and document Caitlin Clark’s historic season has been a privilege for our entire team.

Each of our three players brings a unique set of storylines to the table, and we hope we’re able to capture both the excitement and the complexities surrounding what it means to be an elite female basketball player in 2024.”

The 22-year-old Clark hardly needs an introduction, but her 2023-24 historic season could certainly use a documentary.

The NCAA all-time leading scorer captured a plethora of records in her senior campaign and is still determined to make history this year in March Madness.

After finishing as the runner-ups in last season’s NCAA tournament, the No. 1-seeded Hawkeyes (29–4) are eying the all-too-elusive title.

Gamecocks center Kamilla Cardoso also boasted an impressive senior season averaging 14.0 points, 9.5 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game while helping South Carolina go undefeated (32–0). Cardoso replaced former national player of the year Aliyah Boston in a starting role this year and is a projected top-5 pick in the 2024 WNBA draft in April.

Bruins sophomore guard Kiki Rice is the youngest athlete to be featured in the docuseries but packed in an efficient season with 12.6 points, 5.8 rebounds and a team-leading 4.6 assists per game. Rice could run into Clark early in the NCAA tournament, as both No. 2 UCLA (25–6) and Iowa landed in the Albany 2 Region.

“I remember what it meant to the University of Tennessee and the entire state when Pat Summitt led the Lady Vols to back-to-back national titles during my time in Knoxville,” said Peyton Manning, founder of Omaha Productions.

“We’re excited to share the stories of these three amazing women to a national audience at this incredible moment for women’s basketball.”
