(WMTV) -A new film on Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo is making its cable debut Thursday night.

“The Greek Freak’s” profile is the first installment of a five-part series as part of NBA on TNT, according to Bleacher Report.

The Bleacher Report produced film, The Arena: Giannis and Identity, explores his upbringing in Greece and rise in the NBA.

The 25-year-old is the reigning MVP and the film comes as he looks to make it a back-to-back triumph with the league starting July 30.

It’s not the first time Antetokounmpo was featured in a documentary on TNT. Finding Giannis aired in 2019. His story is also in development for a feature film on Disney+ according to Deadline.

The Arena: Giannis and Identity airs at 7 p.m. CST on Thursday on NBA on TNT.
