Laura Ingraham‘s words are coming back to haunt her.
“Must they run their mouths like that?” she said on her talk show The Ingraham Angle, referring to James and Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant after James slammed the president for not giving “a f— about the people.”
“This is what happens when you attempt to leave high school a year early to join the NBA,” she continued. “So keep the political commentary to yourself. Or as someone once said, shut up and dribble.”
Showtime president and CEO David Nevins made the announcement at the TCA summer press tour on Monday, according to Variety.
“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,” he said. “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.”
Shut Up and Dribble will premiere on Showtime in October.
