LeBron’s Latest Business Venture Is A TV Show
HBO and SpringHill Entertainment–ta company run by LeBron James and his business partner Maverick Carter–reached a deal to develop a comedy series that revolves around a sneaker store. This news comes as part of SpringHill’s developmental deal with Warner Bros. Also apart of the partnership, which was initiated in 2015, is going to include the highly-anticipated sequel to Space Jam.
The HBO show is said to “centers on two best friends and their wild employees at an up-and-coming sneaker shop outside L.A., where they take on the insane and obsessive world of sneaker culture.” It will be written by Shawn Wines and Lemon Andersen, with Wines serving as a co-executive producer with LeBron James and his partner Carter.
There is no official word on when the show will air, though since this is a developmental deal, that likely means the show will at least get a pilot with no guarantee that it will be made into an actual series.
