NowThis, one of Facebook’s most popular news outlets, began filming a documentary series about Las Vegas’ first major professional sports team and its role within the community, especially following the tragic events that occurred on October 1st.
The first episode of the series premiered today, and it’s spectacular.
Like most of NowThis’ work, they intermingle footage, interviews, and personal stories to paint a bigger picture.
This is a terrific opportunity to continue to super-serve our fans with compelling content that helps them understand who our players are behind the visors and masks, and to connect them with our newest franchise on a more emotional level. -Steve Mayer, NHL Chief Content Officer and Executive Vice President
The series is called “Home Team” and each episode will be streamed on a Facebook page devoted to the show.
Home Team: The Vegas Golden Knights will bring fans into the locker rooms and living rooms of the players that helped bring comfort to Las Vegas. -Mayer
One episode in, they completely nailed it that mission. Here’s the first episode.
The series is scheduled for five weeks with one episode per week.
