LaVar Ball’s Family Land Facebook Reality Show
LaVar Ball went from ripping his shirt off in the ring last week to signing a reality TV show deal. Not bad for a “regular dad”.
The outspoken helicopter dad just landed a reality series for his self and his three ball playing sons that will be airing on Facebook. The series will be the first of its kind to air across the platform, as Facebook moves forward into pushing video content, according to Deadline.
The project is untitled so far, but we can reportedly expect a docuseries style show, about the Ball family, whose sons Lonzo, Liangelo and LaMelo have “taken the basketball world by storm”.
Freshman UCLA star Lonzo Ball was chosen by the Los Angeles Lakers as their No. 2 pick in the NBA Draft last month, while Liangelo and LaMelo are stand-outs at Chino Hills High School.
The number and length of episodes of both series is still to be determined.
Nick Grudin, Facebook’s vice president of media partnerships said about the online hub’s foray into original video content, per the report:
“Our goal is to make Facebook a place where people can come together around video, to help get there, we’re supporting a small group of partners and creators as they experiment with the kinds of shows you can build a community around – from sports to comedy to reality to gaming.”
