NBA Star LeBron James Is Creating A New Comedy Series

NBA fan favorite Lebron James will  pen a new comedy about the controversial topic of Gentrification.  LeBron James' production company is working on a comedy with Bill Lawrence of Scrubs called There Goes the Neighborhood, according to Deadline.

According to Deadline, the show is about "the first white family to move into a predominantly black, newly gentrifying neighborhood in Cleveland."

It will be written by comedian Ron Funches (Undateable and @midnight) along with Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan of Community. NBC has committed to the sitcom with penalty, which means that if NBC doesn't air the pilot, they'll owe the production studios a fee. Basically, the show is guaranteed to air.
