National Basketball Association star LeBron James is teaming up with Showtime to produce a three-part documentary series on the role of athletes in America's current cultural climate, the network said Monday.
Its title comes from a comment Fox News host Laura Ingraham made about James in February when she sought to rebuke him for talking politics during an interview.
James is behind a three-part documentary series, "Shut Up and Dribble", announced Monday by Showtime. Gotham Chopra, who directed Tom Brady's Facebook docuseries Tom vs. Time and AT&T's Religion of Sports series, will direct Shut Up And Dribble.
"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", Showtime President David Nevins wrote in a news release, Mediaite reported.
Fortunately, there was an "overwhelmingly negative response" to Trump's "unfair and unkind attack on a good man, LeBron James", Lemon noted. "I like Mike", the President wrote on August 4.

Trump lashed out at the pair of African-American men after James told Lemon in an interview that he would not sit down with Trump, though he would sit with President Barack Obama.
James also promised a free bicycle and helmets for students and vowed to pay tuition to the University of Akron for I Promise graduates, among other things.
Lemon concluded by lamenting that Trump's conduct and attacks on James reflect a dark underbelly of American society where racial minorities get antagonized by their fellow citizens while the president seems to encourage such behavior.
Mr. Lemon fired back Saturday morning, using first lady Melania Trump's anti-bullying campaign hashtag #BeBest.
