On November 2, Willkie client Overtime Elite (OTE), a basketball league featuring top 16-20-year-old players, and Amazon announced a multiyear media rights agreement.


The agreement gives Amazon Prime Video exclusive global streaming rights to 20 live games per season for the next three seasons, beginning November 4, making Prime Video OTE’s first global media rights partner. In addition to broadcast rights, Prime Video will exclusively stream a season-long unscripted series set to debut in mid-2023.


The 20 OTE games will air live on Prime Video on Friday and Saturday nights, broadcast from OTE Arena in Atlanta. The larger on-air broadcast team will include AMP, the sports-and-gaming-focused social media group with over 2 million followers across platforms. 


The Willkie team was led by partner Jared Bartie and included associates Emerson Girardeau and Christian Truman.
