A filmmaker who has always placed himself at the forefront of industry developments, it was inevitable that Steven Soderbergh would eventually hook up with Netflix.

The streaming service is the destination for his latest film, High Flying Bird, a drama set in the world of sports agents. Moonlight writer Tarell Alvin McCraney pens the script.

AndrĂ© Holland headlines as an agent desperate to pull off a coup during a basketball lockout, and the cast also includes Zazie Beetz, Melvin Gregg, Sonja Sohn, Zachary Quinto, Kyle MacLachlan and Bill Duke.

High Flying Bird debuts on Netflix February 8th.

Check out the trailer below.

The official synopsis reads:

In the midst of a pro basketball lockout, sports agent Ray Burke (AndrĂ© Holland) finds himself caught in the face-off between the league and the players. His career is on the line, but Ray is playing for higher stakes. With only 72 hours to pull off a daring plan, he outmaneuvers all the power-players as he uncovers a loophole that could change the game forever. The outcome raises questions of who owns the game – and who ought to.
