COULD BE ADAPTED INTO A WEEKLY SERIES: The Summer League is split between Las Vegas (22 teams) and Orlando (10 teams), but Tollin and his crew of more than a dozen cameras spent most of their time in Sin City due to the potential for more storylines. He said Las Vegas is the “colorful league, the one that’s really set up for a big audience.” Tollin: “They’ll have 10,000 people on a good day, there’s a lot more activity and stories to uncover.” Depending on the film’s success, Tollin said it could turn into either a weekly series on a to-be-determined channel or an annual project. “There was a general sense that they (the NBA) would love to increase the profile of the league,” Tollin said. “They get it that their players are everything and that’s what attracts fans.” “Summer Dreams” was produced by Raquel Productions in association with Mandalay Sports Media, with Jon Weinbach serving as co-Exec Producer.
