LeBron To Produce Docuseries "Shut Up And Dribble"

When it comes to making headlines, LeBron James just "can't stop, won't stop."

The NBA star has inked a deal with Showtime to produce a new docuseries entitled, "Shut Up and Dribble." The three-part documentary series is inspired by Fox News reporter, Laura Ingraham's infamous comment in response to Bron Bron sharing his political opinions.

The series is set to highlight NBA players who have used their on-court stardom to influence the masses through the worlds of business, fashion and to serve as a platform for political expression.

In the words of Showtime’s president and CEO David Nevins,

“If being a star athlete is inherently a political experience, ‘Shut Up and Dribble’ tells that complex and dramatic story from the past to the present and from the inside out. LeBron James is one of many competitors whose place in the spotlight has led not to silence but perspective and he, [fellow EP] Maverick Carter and [director/EP] Gotham Chopra have given us an important, insightful docuseries that should bring their fans and fellow citizens to a higher level of discourse, rather than the dismissal satirized in the title.”

Look Laura, now the jokes on you!

“Shut Up and Dribble” is set to premiere in October.
