The Clubhouse is a new platform for star athletes to tell stories that transcend the sporting arena and have larger implications about the world in which we live. Each short documentary is a behind the scenes, immersive dive into an issue that both has a direct impact on the athlete and is relatable to a broader audience. We ride with a sports star throughout each episode, seeing their world with a distinctly personal lens. The Clubhouse humanizes athletes and introduces issues in a way that’s never been seen before.
OBB Pictures produced the Malcolm Jenkins segment of The Clubhouse:
The national anthem protests started by Colin Kaepernick and adapted by others such as Malcolm Jenkins have become possibly the most polarizing issue in sports. With a nation already divided over issues of policing, the Pro-Bowl Philadelphia Eagles safety decided to use his protest and platform to attempt to bridge the gap between communities and police. We followed Malcolm as he went on a ride along with Philadelphia PD officers and had a one on one sit down with the city’s police commissioner.
