"Not in my wildest dreams would I ever think one of my projects would have been selected for a Sports Emmy Awards nomination," says Campbell. "Boom Squad is the first project I’ve worked on for television in years and getting this nomination, at the start, is amazing."
Rivals: The Boom Squad served as the premiere episode of the VICE World of Sports series. Luke's Miami-based youth football team is at the center of the doc. The Viceland production follows Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman and the story of murdered 6-year-old Liberty City Warriors player King Carter.
“I am excited about creating 'must-see' TV,” adds Uncle Luke. “The best is yet to come!"
Rivals: The Boom Squad is competing against ESPN's 30 For 30: Celtics/Lakers: Best of Enemies, Fox's 89 Blocks, Netflix's Counterpunch, and Showtime's Disgraced. The 2018 Sports Emmy Awards will take place on May 8 at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall in New York City.
