A California community college standout basketball team is getting national recognition: The East Los Angeles College (ELAC) men's basketball team is now being featured on the new season of Netflix's critically-acclaimed documentary series, Last Chance U. The season premiered on March 10 and is already a huge hit among Netflix fans.
"We're excited to see the stories of our East LA athletes shown throughout the world," said ELAC Athletic Director Bobby Godinez. "This is a huge moment not just for our athletes and program, but for our college and community as well."
This season was in production for over a year and a half, and marks the first time the series follows a basketball team. In previous seasons, Last Chance U documented the struggles and triumphs of community college football programs, including Oakland's Laney College.
