How a Team of Women Pulled Off Tubi's Groundbreaking WNBPA Documentary

Presented by Puma, Shattered Glass highlights four WNBA MVPs

Tubi’s groundbreaking basketball documentary, Shattered Glass: A WNBPA Story, almost didn’t happen.

The film, which premiered Jan. 31 on Tubi in partnership with Puma, gives an all-access, behind-the-scenes look at the lives of WNBA superstars Jonquel Jones, Breanna Stewart and Nneka Ogwumike, seeing how the MVPs rose to fame when all the odds were stacked against them.

But for the film to succeed, it had an equally difficult path. The doc had been in development for nearly two years, with a deluge of potential partners saying, “No,” brands constantly slamming doors and distribution falling through at the last minute.

However, through sheer will, perseverance and belief in the project, a group of powerful women pulled off a buzzer-beater to bring Shattered Glass to life.
