The series will shoot in Atlanta. Its six-episode first season airs this fall.
The network did not announce any cast members.
Veteran producer Tom Werner of Roseanne and The Cosby Show fame and Yes, Dear actor Mike O’Malley will also come on board for the series. Although LeBron isn’t slated to appear on-screen just yet, his boldness to rap during public karoake suggest that he’s not battling stage fright.
