Cleveland Cavaliers’ superstar LeBron James may not have added another championship ring to his prodigious trophy case this season—but he did land a television show.

Per CBS Sports, James will be executive producing a new three-part Showtime documentary about the NBA. James’ production company SpringHill Entertainment, which he founded with his business manager Maverick Carter, will co-produce the series on the history and evolution of the NBA with award-winning director Gotham Chopra (son of Deepak).

“We developed the idea for these films because of the incredible, generational impact some of the NBA’s most successful players have had on every aspect of American culture,” Maverick Carter, CEO of SpringHill Entertainment, told CBS Sports. “Gotham is the perfect filmmaker to bring these stories to life, and Showtime is the right platform to showcase how they were able to transcend the game and shape the culture in an unprecedented way.”

The series, which is currently untitled, will premiere on Showtime in 2018.
