Reality check: filming starts ahead of Asian league’s launch

MANILA, Philippines (AP) — Steve Nash will get a behind-the-scenes look at the talent in Season 1 of the East Asia Super League long before the competition starts or a spin-off reality TV series hits the screens.

The pan-regional basketball league has started production on a reality series covering the inaugural season.

Korean film director John H. Lee will lead the project and work with executive producers Ezra Holland, director of CTRL Media owned by NBA great Nash, and Jonah Greenberg of China-based Salty Pictures.

The eight-team league will launch in October and feature the winners and runners-up from the Japanese, South Korean and Philippines leagues as well as the Taiwanese champions and the Bay Area Dragons, a roster of players from across greater China initially based in Manila.

Filming started last month in the Philippines at a ceremony to determine groupings for Season 1.
