Everybody loves an underdog. Snoop Dogg pays homage to his hometown of Long Beach, Calif., in the sports comedy The Underdoggs, premiering Friday (Jan. 26) on Prime Video.
Snoop stars as Jaycen “Two Js” Jennings, a former NFL player who gets sentenced to community service after a car accident. To stay out of jail, Jennings agrees to coach a youth football team in his hometown.
The Underdoggs was filmed at Snoop’s former high school, Long Beach Poly High, in his hometown of Long Beach, Calif.
“Poly High School, the Funkhouse, this is the most prolific high school in Southern California as far as I’m concerned when you think about the greats that have come through that campus,” Snoop said in an interview with the Press-Telegram, his hometown newspaper.
The rapper went on to name some of the many famous faces (besides himself) that attended Poly over the years, including John Wayne, Billie Jean King, Cameron Diaz, Carl Weathers, Tony Gwynn and Willie McGinest.
Snoop produced The Underdoggs alongside Kenya Barris, Mychelle Deschamps and Jonathan Glickman. Charles Stone III directed the movie written by Danny Segal and Isaac Schamis.
Tika Sumpter, Andrew Schulz, Mike Epps and George Lopez are included in the cast.
