LeBron James’s SpringHill Entertainment is behind a pair of new shows coming to NBC.
The plot behind one of the shows was inspired by the life of Philadelphia 76ers guard Ben Simmons. It will be called Brotherly Love and will focus on a sibling relationship within a multi-ethnic family. It will take place in Philadelphia, and Simmons and his brother Sean Tribe will serve as consulting producers. Kourtney Kang, a former co-executive producer on Fresh off the Boat, will also be an executive producer.
The other show will center on a former WNBA star player and coach who returns to her alma mater to become the first-ever female men’s college basketball coach. Elizabeth Banks and Max Handelman’s Brownstone Productions will work with SpringHill Entertainment on the project.
Warner Bros. Television will also be a part of both shows.
