LeBron James, Dwyane Wade producing sports documentaries for Fox

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- LeBron James isn’t the only Cavaliers player who also happens to be an aspiring entertainment mogul.

Dwyane Wade is teaming up with Chance the Rapper to produce a feature-length documentary called “Shot in the Dark” for Fox Sports Films.

Here’s how the network describes the film:

“Set against their hometown of Chicago, the film follows Orr Academy’s high school basketball team and its stars Tyquone Greer and Marquise Pryor as they aspire for greatness under inspirational head coach, Lou Adams, while facing systemic injustices that threaten to claim their future.”

“Basketball empowered me to overcome the challenges of growing up on the south side of Chicago,” Wade said in a release. “The odds were stacked against me, and the game changed the course of my life. It’s important to share these true stories of triumph to inspire the next generation to achieve their dreams when faced with life’s obstacles.”

“Shot in the Dark” is scheduled to air in February.

The film is part of “Magnify,” a new series of sports documentaries on Fox and the network’s answer to ESPN’s “30 for 30.”

The series debuts with “89 Blocks,” about the East St. Louis High School Flyers football team and produced by James and business partner Maverick Carter.

“89 Blocks” airs Nov. 26 on Fox. The documentary is just one of James’ many television projects, which include a youth football docuseries for Starz, a fish-out-of-water sitcom for ABC, a sneaker store comedy on HBO and a historical drama series starring Octavia Spencer for Netflix.

Not to be outdone, Iman Shumpert, Wade and James’ teammate, also has a VH-1 reality show in the works.
