NBA star LeBron James, who took his talents to Los Angeles from Cleveland, is getting even more into the entertainment game and will executive-produce a series of documentaries for Showtime called “Shut Up and Dribble”:

The title of the series, if you recall, comes from Laura Ingraham who earlier this year told James to “shut up and dribble”:

“Ho Sit Down”? “Hag”? Stay classy!

The goal of the series is to “bring their fans and fellow citizens to a higher level of discourse,” which it seems the writers at Bossip have missed. From Variety:

“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,” said Nevins. “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.”

The series is set to debut in October, one month before the midterm elections:
