We are ecstatic to announce that CNBC has acquired the exclusive broadcast rights to air a brand new, completely re-cut version of "Sonicsgate: Requiem for a Team" that premieres this Friday night!    


Check out the official CNBC trailer running this week. 


This revamped, never-before-seen version of the film features new graphics, photos, music, visual effects, evidence, archive footage and new  interviews with Sonics Legend Shawn Kemp and Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament.    


So even if you've watched the two-hour Director's Cut multiple times online, you will get something new out of this version.  We can't wait to show you and share this story with a national audience!  

  • "Sonicsgate: Requiem for a Team" Premiere 
  • National TV Broadcast on CNBC 
  • Friday, April 27 and Sunday, April 29  
  • 10:00 P.M. Eastern / 7:00 P.M. Pacific   
Unlike the two-hour Online Director's Cut of the film released for free in 2009, we can make DVD copies of the 2012 re-cut available for sale beginning April 27, including over 20 minutes of exclusive bonus features!   

Check out our new website for all the details on the 2012 release! 
CNBC is available in more than 100 million homes in the U.S. and many more worldwide with certain satellite providers, so check your local listings and tell your friends to watch!

Aaron Levine of Q It Up Sports calls the CNBC premiere
"an absolute must see event."  Set your DVRs and stay tuned...

Director Jason Reid
and producer Adam Brown were also interviewed for an episode of the show Sports Biz on NBC Sports Network that airs this Friday, April 27 at 9:30pm Pacific.  Check it out after the premiere of "Sonicsgate: Requiem for a Team" and the NHL hockey playoff games. 

Between this news and the generous Chris Hansen arena proposal, momentum is at an all-time high for bringing an NBA team back to restore the legacy of the Sonics. 

We sincerely appreciate everyone who helped the cause along the way by contributing content to the movie, donating on Kickstarter, spreading the word, covering it in media and keeping hope alive.
