WHAT: Coaches’ Wives is a new documentary about the unsung heroes of sports, the wives of coaches. The feature-length film chronicles both the joys and struggles of being married to a coach. Producer/Director, Jonathan Moore, is the son of a coach’s wife, and exposes these women as the most unsung heroes in modern sports. The documentary showcases the coach’s wife as the backbone of the family and the team, often serving as mother to the players, managing a hectic schedule and unruly fans. When a coach’s family is constantly in the public eye, like Jeanie Buss, wife of Phil Jackson of the Los Angeles Lakers, the coach’s wife brings normalcy to an often-chaotic lifestyle.
The documentary film includes Jeanie Buss (Los Angeles Lakers), Meo Stansbury (Texas A&M), Kathy Auriemma (Univ. of Connecticut) and Mindy Rice (UNLV). Numerous coaches’ wives at the middle school, high school and small college level are also featured, including Neezer McNab (Sherman Oaks Notre Dame High School), and Daniela Olson (Manhattan Beach, Mira Costa High School).
Coaches’ Wives is produced by 33 Films. Producer/Director: Jonathan Moore (Associate Professor of Cinema Arts at Vanguard University), Karen Moore (Associate Director and Editor of “Last Call with Carson Daly” on NBC). Director of Photography: Kyo Edmoundson. Editor: Karen Moore.
