Into the Fire provides a comprehensive look at the 2010-11 season beginning on July 9, 2010 with the historic signing of the year's top three free agents: Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh. Narrated by HEAT Legend Alonzo Mourning, the film gives the audience an insider's look at the team from the opening of training camp to the highs and lows of the grueling regular season to the epic rematch between the HEAT and the Dallas Mavericks during the 2011 NBA Finals. It showcases spectacular highlights, player post-game reactions and commentary from Wade, Bosh, Udonis Haslem, Head Coach Erik Spoelstra and Team President Pat Riley. The story is told through a collage of local and national media clips and interviews conducted with writers who regularly cover the team.
Much of the footage was culled from HEATV, the team's in-house, Emmy Award-winning production department putting the viewers behind the scenes, on the bench and inside the HEAT locker room with unprecedented access. Footage was also provided by Sun Sports, TNT Sports, ABC Sports, ESPN and NBA Entertainment.
Into the Fire was conceived by Ed Filomia the team's Senior Director of Media Production and created by HEATV in association with NBA Entertainment.
