Formed by NBA Legend Kobe Bryant, Granity Studios is an award-winning multimedia original content company focused on creating new ways to tell stories around sports. Stories that are crafted to entertain, by bringing education and inspiration together. “The Wizenard Series” earned Gold from this year’s Grand Jury.
In this edition of Content POV, we hear from Phylicia Rashad, who narrated the series.
As perhaps one of Kobe Bryant’s most personal children’s book, The Wizenard Series reminds middle-grade students that with hard work, belief in one’s self, and a sprinkle of magic, all things are possible.
The Wizenard Series: Training Camp, NBA legend, and Academy Award-winner Kobe Bryant proved that his gift as a storyteller extends well beyond the screen. Granity Studios’ debut novel became an instant #1 New York Times bestseller.
Bryant and Granity Studios’ audiobook series, narrated by Phylicia Rashad, blends fantasy and realism in coming-of-age tales about finding your inner magic: “Legacy and the Queen” about a young female tennis prodigy who must defeat impossible and supernatural odds to save everything that is important to her and “Epoca” set in an alternate classical world dominated by sports and magical power.
“Young people are dealing with a lot right now, and they don’t have a way to express or communicate the help they need. These books are outlets and will give young people and parents support.”
