NEW YORK  – August 11, 2016 – ONE & DONE, the SHOWTIME Sports documentary chronicling the sprawling journey of 2016 NBA No. 1 draft pick Ben Simmons, will premiere Friday, Oct. 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME.  The project, which was announced two days before Simmons was selected first overall in the 2016 NBA Draft by the Philadelphia 76ers, is an intimate portrait that examines the coming-of-age of a basketball prodigy.  ONE & DONE is set to premiere just days prior to the start of the NBA season.

ONE & DONE takes viewers from Simmons’ Australian upbringing, to high school and college in America, to the top of the rookie class in the world’s foremost basketball league.  The film captures Simmons and his inner circle in realizing a lifelong family dream as he is selected No. 1 and prepares to embark on the next chapter of his journey.
