AXS TV has secured the rights to Magnolia Pictures’ sports documentary on veteran NBA star Dirk Nowitzki.

The doc, Nowitzki: The Perfect Shot, will debut on the channel Oct. 29 and tells the story of the 13-time NBA All-Star, from his beginning playing German basketball to his run as the star of the Dallas Mavericks, including becoming the first non-American to lead his team to victory in the NBA Finals.

Produced by Emmy-winning filmmaker Leopold Hoesch, the documentary will feature interviews with Mavericks and AXS owner Mark Cuban, Kobe Bryant, Jason Kidd and former NBA Commissioner David Stern.
