Showtime on Monday announced James will executive-produce a three-part docuseries for the premium cable network called “Shut Up and Dribble,” about the evolving role that athletes, particularly those in the NBA, play in the current political environment.
The title comes from comments Ingraham directed to James on air in February, relating to news that some players from the Golden State Warriors declined an invitation to the White House after their championship win in 2018.
Director Gotham Chopra, who was also behind Showtime’s “Kobe Bryant’s Muse,” will direct the series.
A undercover officer named Rogers is the only one who can get in close enough to the criminals that terrorize neighborhoods with drugs and violence. However, he finds himself becoming part of the problem as he almost becomes what he’s trying to bring down.
