As things stand now, LeBron James is more worried about how to turn things around for the Los Angeles Lakers. However, that does not mean the 37-year-old cannot embark on other things such as being an executive producer.

James is no stranger to engaging in such, having been part of producing TV shows that include HBO's unscripted The Shop and NBC game show The Wall.

Of course, most will remember how he starred on “Space Jam: A New Legacy.”

Given those accomplishments, the 17-time NBA All-Star will now join a group of producers for a Disney drama titled “The Crossover,” The Hollywood Reporter reported. That includes Maverick Carter and Jamal Henderson, James’ SpringHill Company partners.

“The Crossover” is based on a Newbery Medal-winning novel by Kwame Alexander. It is a coming-of-age drama centered on two middle school basketball prodigies, brothers Josh (Jaylyn Hall) and JB Bell (Amir O’Neil).

Josh narrates the story of their lives on and off the court via his lyrical poetry, as their former professional basketball player father adjusts to life after basketball and their mother finally gets to pursue dreams of her own.

“We’re honored to bring Kwame Alexander’s poignant, emotional and poetic story to our Disney+ audience in partnership with this outstanding group of creative talent,” Disney Branded Television president Ayo Davis stated.

Other cast members for the said series include Derek Luke, Sabrina Revelle, Skyla I’Lece, Deja Monique Cruz and Trevor Raine Bush.

Further details are limited as of this writing although it seems pretty clear that James has been making a name for himself in the production scene.

All that aside, the four-time NBA champion has more alarming matters to address. The Lakers continue to struggle and turmoil from within is far from resolved.

At 37, there is no telling up to when James will be playing pro basketball. Regardless, it appears he has another career waiting in the film-making industry.
