Just like there is an availability of umpteen streamers over the years and it seems to only be piling on all the more, there is yet another joining the market soon in the form of Vudu, which will be Walmart's digital video service.

Vudu is now turning his attention to athlete-based docuseries and one of the first ones in the same will be former NBA player Dwyane Wade's called Legacy.

The eight-episode series hails from Whistle and is executive produced by Wade through his 59th & Prairie.

Wade's son Zaire is among the athletes that Legacy will follow. The series will track the younger Wade's final season of high school basketball. Vashti Cunningham, the daughter of former NFL star Randall Cunningham, will also appear as she trains for the 2020 Olympics. Other athletes profiled in the series will include Evan and Elijah Holyfield, the sons of boxer Evander Holyfield. While Evan is pursuing a boxing career like his father's, Elijah is a running back for the Carolina Panthers. Additional subjects are expected to be named in the coming months. 

"I'm proud to executive produce Legacy and bring my son’s unique athletic journey to other aspiring young athletes," Wade said in a statement. "I hope this docuseries leaves viewers feeling inspired through showing the hard work and dedication needed to turn your dreams into reality."

"Legacy is a part of Vudu’s commitment to invest in creating premium and compelling original content for families to enjoy together," said Jeremy Verba, vp and general manager of Vudu. "We're thrilled to collaborate with Whistle and Dwyane Wade and bring this motivational series to life."
