Back in February this year, Fox News host Laura Ingraham fired back at LeBron James and told him to “shut up and dribble,” telling him stay away from politics and focus on his career as a basketball player.
Now, James and his business manager Maverick Carter are starting a new three-part documentary series called “Shut up and Dribble.”
LeBron James will act as executive producer for a three-part Showtime docuseries exploring “the changing role of athletes in our fraught cultural and political environment.” https://t.co/V5WUXNgSJA

They both have the roles as executive producers, and the series will be directed by Gotham Chopra.
“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 Showtime President David Nevins in the release. “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.”
