Full Court Press – a new original series streaming on ESPN+ beginning May 11 -- chronicles the ongoing journeys of senior Iowa guard Caitlin Clark, senior South Carolina center Kamilla Cardoso and sophomore UCLA guard Kiki Rice. From Iowa’s historic preseason game that broke attendance records all the way through the WNBA draft in April, the series uses unparalleled access, exclusive interviews, and unique game footage to transport audiences into the lives of these exceptional athletes. Full Court Press follows them as they steer their celebrated programs towards a national championship, all while navigating the pressures that come with representing the game during a pivotal era in women’s basketball.

Full Court Press followed these three players throughout this record-breaking season, capturing Kamilla Cardoso’s game-winning three-pointer to send South Carolina to the SEC Championship; Kiki Rice’s experiences as the first college athlete to have an NIL deal with Jordan brand; and Caitlin Clark becoming the all-time leading scorer in NCAA women’s basketball and the all-time leading scorer in NCAA collegiate basketball history. The show takes audiences from Paris to Brazil, from sold-out arenas in Baton Rouge to Iowa City for the biggest matchups, offering a window into this unique moment in the history of the sport.

Emmy Award-winning director Kristen Lappas (daughter of Steve Lappas, former basketball coach at both Villanova and Manhattan College and current CBS Sports analyst) produced eight installments of ESPN’s acclaimed 30 for 30 series and directed the 30 for 30 multi-part series Dream On about the 1996 gold-medal-winning U.S. women’s basketball team. She won Emmys for her short sports docs Blackfeet Boxing: Not Invisible, A Mountain to Climb and her short film Arthur was adapted into a movie starring Mark Wahlberg and premieres in 2024.
