What if we told you … corona didn’t stop ball.
When the WNBA announced it would sequester its 2020 season at the IMG Academy wubble in Florida, much of the conversation centered on the unique and intriguing stories that would come out of said campus when the season concluded.
It appears that ESPN and the W have teamed up … and will be giving us what we want.
Hearing that the WNBA and ESPN will start production on a documentary in the #Wubble this weekend. 👀👀👀

My sources told me that the #WNBA has officially filed a trademark for “WUBBLE.” That could mean that there will be merch coming soon to go along with the documentary that has started production today.

According to the great Khristina Williams at GirlsTalkSports, ESPN has began production on a WNBA documentary about the 2020 season. She also reports there was a trademark filed for “wubble,” which more than likely centers around merchandising opportunities.
Already, there has been a myriad of stories that have come from this season – injuries to Sabrina Ionescu (New York Liberty) and Chennedy Carter (Atlanta Dream), the initial reactions to the housing spaces in Florida, the backlash to Dream co-owner and Georgia senator Kelly Loeffler’s anti-Black Lives Matter stance (and support of one of her election opponents – Raphael Warnock) and the dominance of the Seattle Storm halfway through the season.
If this doc is anything like The Last Dance….
