Ice Cube Teams W/ Lebron James For TV Show

Ice Cube is set to return to the small screen with plans to team up with NBA phenom Lebron James to create a television show based on the hoop phenom’s high school years. 

In association with his CubeVision production company, Cube is linking with James- and his newly formed Spring Hill productions – for a one hour drama set to air on ABC . According to ESPN the Magazine, Cube and King James will be co-creators of the program and will each executive produce.

Not only does Ice Cube know what it’s like to be in the spotlight at a young age, but he also has experience with sports-related projects. The 39-year-old just appeared in The Longshots, a movie based on the the true tale of the first female to play Pop Warner football.

The yet-to-be-named pilot, said to be a mix between “Entourage” and the television version of “Friday Night Lights.” In accordance with network approval, all sides hope to begin production in the spring with the goal of a fall 2009 premier.

This is not the West Coast vet’s first time working on a project for TV. In 2006 he executive produced the debut episode of the racially charged show “Black.White” for the FX network.- Adam Fleisher

    It’s big business bitch. Lebron is doin his thing on the business tip. Plus Ice Cube has made it completely cool for a used-to-jerry curl rockin gangsta to make it into the white people’s living room. This will only broaden both of their appeals across the board.
