Kaepernick, who has never given a full, first-person account of his journey, is collaborating closely with Lee who plans to use extensive new interviews and a vast never-before-seen archive to help Kaepernick tell his story from his perspective.

The documentary will be executive produced by ESPN Films and produced by 40 Acres and a Mule Filmworks.

Jemele Hill

Kaepernick is partnering with former ESPN television personality Jemele Hill, who is also a producer on the project.

Further details on the project will be announced at a later date.
