The Underdoggs sees Snoop play the role of Jaycen "Two Js" Jennings, a retired NFL player who finds himself on the wrong side of a bus crash and ends up serving community service back in his hometown. But instead of just doing his time, he decides to coach a bunch of kids trying to make a football team.

The trailer kicks off with Snoop philosophising about the perils of being a superstar.

“America loves motherfuckin’ greatness,” the Gin And Juice rapper says in the trailer. “But once you reach the mountaintop of greatness, everybody wants to see you fall.”

Snoop, along with a crew that includes Tika Sumpter, George Lopez, and Mike Epps, takes on the challenge of turning a group the underdog kids into a legit football squad.
