Showtime has released the first look at their LeBron James-executive produced documentary series “Shut Up and Dribble.”
The three-part docuseries, set to premiere on November 3 at 9/8c, will highlight the changing role of athletes in the current political environment.
The title of the series was inspired by conservative pundit Laura Ingraham’s asinine remarks to LeBron when the Golden State Warriors declined an invitation to the White House after winning the 2018 NBA Championship.
Showtime president and CEO David Nevins talked about the docuseries during the TCA summer tour saying:
If being a star athlete is inherently a political experience, ‘Shut Up and Dribble’ tells that complex and dramatic story from the past to the present and from the inside out.
LeBron James is one of many competitors whose place in the spotlight has led not to silence but perspective, and he, Maverick Carter and Gotham Chopra have given us an important, insightful docuseries that should bring their fans and fellow citizens to a higher level of discourse, rather than the dismissal satirized in the title.
