In celebration of the new series hitting the airwaves, the cast of The Crossover hit the orange carpet earlier this week for the premiere at the Hollywood Athletic Club in Los Angeles, CA. Jalyn Hall and Amir O’Neal, who portray basketball phenoms, in addition to brothers in the Disney+ series, twinned at the star-studded event.


If you are just now getting caught up on what this new series, based on a book by Kwame Alexander entails, take a look below at a brief synopsis according to the popular entertainment news outlet, JustJaredJr.com.

[The series is described as a] heartwarming, poignant story about a family of basketball players. The series introduces teen brothers Josh (Hall) and Jordan (O’Neil) Bell, widely considered basketball phenoms. Through his lyrical poetry, an adult version of Josh, aka Filthy (Daveed Diggs), narrates the story of he and his brother’s coming-of-age, on and off the court, as their former professional basketball player father adjusts to life after basketball and their mother finally pursues lifelong dreams of her own.

In addition to Hall and O’Neal, the new series co-stars that were also in attendance at the premiere included: Skyla I’Lece, Trevor Bush, Deja Monique Cruz, Sabrina Revelle, Derek Luke, Yvonne Senat Jones, Himie Freeman, Elijah Jacob, Joel Steingold, Joshua Caleb Johnson and Gabriela Lopez.

“We’re honored to bring Kwame Alexander’s poignant, emotional and poetic story to our Disney+ audience in partnership with this outstanding group of creative talent,” Ayo Davis, president of Disney Branded Television, shared in a statement back in 2022.

And that talent doesn’t end with the cast and crew. There is another talented individual at the helm of it all to help bring authenticity to the series. Thirty-eight-year-old Lebron James is serving as executive producer of the project in conjunction with collaborating through his own production company, the SpringHill Company.

The Crossover is streaming now on Disney+!
