Complex & Netflix have teamed up to develop a new comedy series called “Sneakerheads”
The series focuses on ex-sneakerhead Devin, played by Maldonado, a stay-at-home father who’s lured back into the game and is almost immediately placed $5,000 in the hole after an old friend—Bobby (played by Andrew Bachelor a.k.a. King Bach)—pulls a get-rich-quick scheme.
Allen Maldonado stars in Sneakerheads, a new Complex Network original production created by Jay Longino, who also serves as showrunner.
“Sneakerheads is a fun and adventurous take on the world of sneakers from the scope of an ex-sneakerhead, who ‘relapses,'” Maldonado says of the new Complex original. “This is for sneakerheads worldwide, we putting on for you.”
“The show may be called Sneakerheads but you don’t have to be a collector or even know anything about shoes to relate to what it’s really about,” Longino said. “Things like friendship, family and pursuit of a passion are themes that resonate with everyone. When I was a kid growing up in Atlanta, MJ gave me a pair of his game-worn White Cement 4s after he dropped 48 in them against the Hawks. A few years later, my mom accidentally sold them in a garage sale. I obviously didn’t know it at the time, but that moment was the seed that ultimately grew into Sneakerheads.”
Sneakerheads is due to hit Netflix on September 26th 2020. Check it out here
