LeBron has a ton of Hollywood projects (Space Jam 3?) that may need a director. First, a couple of Lake Show Life guys have a request!

LeBron James got to work in the Hollywood circles early producing a talk show called “The Shop” almost immediately after signing with the Lakers. Plus he as a couple of future dealings with NBC concerning another NBA superstar Ben Simmons.

According to Nellie Andreeva of Deadline, James and Simmons was in the works to produce a comedy based on Simmons’s life titled “Brotherly Love”. A script commitment has already been approved by NBC and Kourtney Kang was named executive producer.

"The network has given a script commitment plus penalty to basketball-themed drama Hoops, from writer Jennifer Cecil (Notorious), LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s SpringHill Entertainment, Elizabeth Banks and Max Handelman’s Brownstone Productions, and Warner Bros. Television where both SpringHill and Brownstone are based. NBC also recently gave a script commitment plus penalty to Brotherly Love, a single-camera comedy from 2018 NBA Rookie of the Year Ben Simmons, James and his SpringHill Entertainment as well as writer Kourtney Kang. In Hoops, after years on the road as both a star player and coach in the WNBA, Stevie Decker jumps at the chance to return to her alma mater to become the first female head coach of a men’s college basketball team. But coming home isn’t easy as her career took a toll on her family, and the school she loves is embroiled in a sex scandal involving her mentor, a legendary former coach."

SpringHill Entertainment, a production company created by James and Maverick Carter, will be a part of producing these shows when they get greenlit.

In addition to Brotherly Love, the company also produces “The Wall”, which is also on NBC. Their work also includes documentaries on YouTube, Starz and much more.

All productions need directors, Spike. Leave the Knicks and come on over to a winning franchise. But before you go, Kenneth Teape and Ronald Agers have one question.
