NEW YORK – March 29, 2019 – SHOWTIME has released the official key art and trailer for its new feature-length documentary THE RESURGENCE: DeMARCUS COUSINS, premiering on Saturday, April 13 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The SHOWTIME Sports Documentary Films original chronicles Cousins, the Golden State Warriors’ power forward, through his grueling comeback from a career-threatening injury and his path through free agency. THE RESURGENCE: DeMARCUS COUSINS provides unfettered access to one of the NBA’s biggest personalities at the most crucial time of his career.

THE RESURGENCE goes inside the mind of Cousins as he suffers an Achilles injury that has been career-ending for some NBA players.

Viewers witness Cousins’ roller-coaster ride through free agency that culminated in a shocking one-year deal with the two-time defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors and join his private and emotionally charged journey back from a devastating injury.

Since last summer’s NBA free agency period, the network has released a series of short-form behind-the-scenes clips online to introduce the project.
