LeBron James is executive producing “Hoops” a female-driven drama for NBC.
According to THR, the hour-long drama, written by Jennifer Cecil, centers around Stevie Decker, a former WNBA player and coach who jumps at the chance to return to her alma mater to become the first female coach of the men’s college basketball team.
But, that’s not that simple…Stevie’s career has taken a toll on her family and the school she loves is embroiled in a sex scandal involving her mentor, a legendary former coach. Yikes!
LeBron has been in L.A. on his grind (on and off of the court)! In addition to “Hoops,” LBJ has a Madame C.J. Walker drama at Netflix, a Muhammad Ali documentary at HBO, an NBA doc film series for Showtime, “Best Shot” for YouTube and “Warriors of Liberty City” for Starz.
