Allen Iverson Was Framed

By Nelly:

Not sure if I should take a late pass on this one or not, but I just discovered IFC/Reebok's Framed series last week. If you haven't seen it yet, Framed is a descendant of Sundance/Grey Goose's Iconoclasts series--which makes it an intriguing concept that is prone to veering into the prententious.

There's no better indication of how it can take itself too seriously than its episode synopses.

Which teaser would be more likely to make you watch that show:

A) "Hip hop star Nelly directs an unscripted short film about his friend and NBA icon Allen Iverson. Everyone is in on the challenge of watching two superstars, used to their own rules and schedules make a short film in two days about Iverson's competitive spirit, both on and off the court."

B) "Grammy winner Nelly and NBA MVP Allen Iverson are friendly rivals. So, who is the better fisherman? The better Spades player? The maker of more half court shots? You'll have to watch this episode of Framed to find out. And if that's not enough for you, AI talks shit on OJ, too."

If I were you, I'd vote for (B). But that's just me.
