Whistle Sports has teamed with go90 to bring back its popular Dunk League series for another season set for this fall. Dunk League Season One, revolved around eight famous dunkers who competed for $20,000. The show reached more than 55.5 million fans across various social channels and on the go90 app.
In the second season, viewers can expect to see familiar faces, new dunkers, and crazier competitions over 26 episodes as they progress to the SemiFinal and Finals in New York City for an even bigger cash prize. Season two will open up with a four-city, regional tour in search of top dunkers across the country. Host and Dunk League commissioner, “Mouthpiece” will field dunk auditions in Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago and New York City, and hand-select the nine best dunkers to join defending champion Guy Dupuy. On top of dunk competitions, “Road to Dunk League,” will showcase profiles of each city and dunker as well as feature behind-the-scene extras.
Whistle Sports is finalizing a social-voting element ensuring that fans will be able to vote for their favorite dunkers. After selecting each region’s top dunkers, the Dunk League begins with 10 contestants before arriving at the final battle featuring just two remaining competitors.
“Viewers today want to do more than watch a video. They want to engage and connect with the players to be a part of the experience,” said Jeff Urban, President,Whistle Sports. “Season two of Dunk League does just that. With go90, it’s even easier for audiences to participate.”
Whistle Sports’ audience is made up of over 350 million aggregate subscribers, fans and followers between the ages of 13–34.
