He is at point where he does not have much to prove on the court. So, he decided to dive a little deeper into the movie industry. He therefore executively produced a basketball-themed scripted series inspired by his early career.

The scripted drama has been created by KD, Reggie Rock Bythewood and Brian Grazer, and produced by Thirty Five Ventures, Imagine Television Studios, CBS and Undisputed Cinema.

The story is based on a young phenom named Jace Carson, played by Isaiah Hill. He is one of the best prospects in the country. Surrounded by friends and family, Jace Carson has to navigate the world of AAU basketball, and understand the fine line between dreams and ambition, as well as corruptions and opportunism.

Jenna, played by Actress Shinelle Azoroh (Naija No Dey Carry Last!), is willing to sacrifice anything to make her son a true NBA champion. His trainer Ike, played by O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Ice Cube’s son), is taking on the role of mentor.
