Le­Bron scores TV gig

Los Angeles Times - - CALENDAR -

Le­Bron James is team­ing with Show­time on a doc­u­men­tary that will ex­am­ine the mod­ern NBA and the league’s im­pact on pop­u­lar cul­ture. The Cava­liers su­per­star, who has been pro­duc­ing TV and movie projects for sev­eral years, will serve as an ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer with long-time busi­ness part­ner Mav­er­ick Carter.

The three-part doc­u­men­tary will be di­rected by film­maker Gotham Cho­pra and premiere in 2018.

James has be­come one of the game’s most tran­scen­dent play­ers. The 32-year-old re­cently led Cleve­land to its third straight fi­nals — his sev­enth con­sec­u­tive trip. The three-time cham­pion con­tin­ues to play at an amaz­ingly high level af­ter 14 pro sea­sons.

“We de­vel­oped the idea for these films be­cause of the in­cred­i­ble, gen­er­a­tional im­pact some of the NBA’s most suc­cess­ful play­ers have had on ev­ery as­pect of Amer­i­can cul­ture,” said Carter, CEO of SpringHill En­ter­tain­ment.
