Current Project

The Final Season


The Final Season is a seven-part episodic docuseries that chronicles the #1 high school football team in Michigan, the Farmington Hills Harrison Hawks, as they embark on their final season before their school closes down forever. Undersized, undermanned, and without a quarterback, does this team have what it takes to live up to the Harrison legacy? Or will the weight of the moment be too much?
