May segments include:
CASTER SEMENYA & INTERSEX ATHLETES: After years of being forced by track’s governing body, World Athletics, to take hormone therapy to suppress her body’s natural testosterone, Olympic gold medalist middle distance runner Caster Semenya launched a lawsuit claiming they violated her human rights. In a rare interview, Semenya sits down with Real Sports to discuss the controversy surrounding her ability to compete. Andrea Kremer reports. Producer: Nisreen Habbal.

DESHAUN WATSON ACCUSERS: Several women who have accused Deshaun Watson of sexual misconduct sit down for their first ever national TV interview. In the report, they detail the alleged abuse they suffered and share their reactions to Watson’s record-breaking $230 million contract with the Cleveland Browns. Soledad O’Brien reports. Producer: Max Gershberg.

SAVANNAH BANANAS: Some say America’s national pastime – baseball – has become too long, slow and boring. The solution, according to Jesse Cole, is Banana Ball, a game Cole invented and named after the team he owns – the Savannah Bananas. Banana Ball has a two-hour time limit and removes what Cole says are all the boring parts of baseball, like bunting and stepping out of the batter’s box. To play his game, Cole has assembled a cast of characters. He recruited a pitcher on stilts, a rodeo clown and a 75-year-old former Major League All-Star, who descends from the bleachers, beer in hand. If Cole sounds more like a ringmaster than a traditional baseball owner, perhaps that’s because Cole fashions himself after P.T. Barnum, the founder of Barnum & Bailey circus. Mary Carillo reports. Producer: Jake Rosenwasser.
The executive producer of REAL SPORTS WITH BRYANT GUMBEL is Joe Perskie.



HBO Documentary Films Acquires Sundance Grand Jury Prize Winner, “All That Breathes”





HBO Documentary Films Acquires Sundance Grand Jury Prize Winner, ALL THAT BREATHES, From Director Shaunak Sen

An Official Selection At 2022 Cannes Film Festival, The Film Will Be Released In Theaters This Fall

HBO Documentary Films has acquired worldwide television rights to ALL THAT BREATHES, from director Shaunak Sen (“Cities of Sleep”). The film premiered in January at the Sundance Film Festival and was selected as the Grand Jury Prize winner in the World Cinema Documentary Competition. It is the only film from Sundance screening as an Official Selection at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival. Submarine Deluxe and Sideshow will release the film in arthouse theaters nationwide this fall, along with a robust festival rollout, ahead of its debut on HBO and HBO Max in 2023. Submarine negotiated with HBO Documentary Films on behalf of the filmmakers.

Synopsis: ALL THAT BREATHES follows two brothers who run a bird hospital dedicated to rescuing injured black kites, a staple in the skies of New Delhi, India. In one of the world’s most populated cities, where cows, rats, monkeys, frogs, and hogs jostle cheek-by-jowl with people, the “kite brothers” care for thousands of these mesmerizing creatures that drop daily from New Delhi’s smog-choked skies. As environmental toxicity and civil unrest escalate, the relationship between this family and the neglected kites forms a poetic chronicle of the city’s collapsing ecology and deepening social fault lines.

Director Shaunak Sen quote: “The astonishing story of Saud and Nadeem, and their relationship with the majestic raptor called the ‘black kite’, took us three years to shape. Over time, the story became symptomatic of both Delhi’s ecological and social malaise, while also giving glimpses of a rare resilience. Most of us in the crew in India have grown up associating the unmistakable white noise of the HBO logo with high quality cinematic programming. We’re thrilled to join their roster and to work with Sideshow and Submarine Deluxe to bring this story to a global audience.”

Submarine Deluxe’s Dan Braun quote: “ALL THAT BREATHES is one of the great discoveries of the year. Filled with humorous and heartbreaking moments in equal measure, ALL THAT BREATHES is a stunning achievement and announces Shaunak Sen as a major voice in cinema today. We are proud to partner with HBO Documentary Films to bring the film to the public.”

Nowhere is that rivalry more apparent than on East 61st Street, where Marian Brook and her thoroughly old money aunts, Agnes van Rhijn and Ada Brook, live opposite the stupendously rich George and Bertha Russell. The Russells are both fiercely ambitious, he financially, she socially, and they are determined to reach the highest echelons of New York.

In this glittering world on the brink of the modern age, will the established rules of society prevail, or will the game change entirely?
