Luther “UNCLE LUKE” Campbell is pleased to announce that the documentary: RIVALS BOOM SQUAD based on his Liberty City Optimist youth football league on Viceland’s Vice World of Sports has been nominated for the “Outstanding Long Sports Documentary” for the 39th Annual Sports Emmy® Awards. The Sports Emmy Awards show will take place on May 8th at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederic P. Rose Hall in New York City.

“Not in my wildest dreams would I ever think one of my projects would have been selected for a Sports Emmy Awards nomination. Boom Squad… is the first project I’ve worked on for television in years and getting this nomination, at the start, is amazing.” says Campbell.

What’s even more amazing is that the documentary has already spawned the first project executive produced by Luke Films where he partners with LeBron James’ SpringHill Entertainment and once again with creator/show runner Evan Rosenfeld for the docu-series on STARZ, Warriors of Liberty City, recently screened at SXSW.

“I am excited about creating ‘must-see’ TV,” exclaims Campbell. “The best is yet to come!”

Off to an amazing start as a television and film producer, the music industry trailblazer is taking television and film by storm with his new entity, Luke Films, which is in the process of developing several small and big screen projects while teaming with Marty Bowen on the biopic of his life story being written for feature film release with Lions Gate.
