CloseUp360 Partners with Players TV, a New Television Hub for Sports Lifestyle Content
CloseUp360 is coming to TV! We're excited to be a lead basketball content partner for PlayersTV, a new network dedicated to sports lifestyle and culture entertainment that officially launches on March 25 on Samsung TV Plus, with more offerings beyond that. Thank you to PTV co-founders Deron Guidrey and Collin Castellaw, and the rest of the leadership team. It's special to work with Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony, C.J. McCollum, Anthony Tolliver and Garrett Temple, and other pro athletes who are part of the PTV family.
"We launched CloseUp360 with the goal of becoming the best and most in-depth storytelling platform for all players and fans in one of the world’s fastest growing sports,” CloseUp360 founder Jared Zwerling said. “We’ve already worked with more than 150 players and produced around 75 mini-documentaries in just over a year, and we’re excited to help lead the basketball content division of Players Media Group and PlayersTV. They align perfectly with our player-first focus and lifestyle vision, and we’re looking forward to working with their notable players and leadership team.”
