What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Slamma Jamma is a faith-based drama starring real-life slam dunker Chris Staples as a basketball-playing ex-con who returns to his old L.A. neighborhood to turn his life around. There's very little in the way of strong language (rare use of "damn," "hell," and "oh my God"), sexuality, or substance use, but you can expect some gun threats and violence. A store clerk is shot and killed in a robbery, though viewers don't see the bullet land. And gang members who sell drugs are featured in the story. Spoiler alert: A major character dies in a long, sad hospital scene. Christian messages are delivered throughout (i.e., "God will be with us;" "God has a plan"), and fans who like high-flying jumps over men and motorcycles may enjoy the basketball action.
