We’ve just learned that Jemele Hill will now serve as the narrator of LeBron James’ documentary, Shut Up and Dribble!
The Hollywood Reporter shared that the documentary is a three-part series on “NBA players who have used their on-court stardom to impact the worlds of business and fashion and sometimes stake a claim to part of the political conversation.”
As of right now, we know that Charles Barkley, Isaiah Thomas, and Kevin Durant are a few of your favorite celebrities that will appear in the documentary.
In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Hill said,
“Lately LeBron has talked about gender and wanting to uplift and position black women in particular,” says Hill. “I get the sense that this is all part of that. He was raised by a black woman, he is married to a black woman and he is raising a black woman (daughter Zhuri, 3). If you look at the societal ladder, black women remain on the lowest rung. He clearly understands that we are facing a unique battle. It means a lot that he understands the intricacies of that.”
Shut Up and Dribble is set to premiere on Showtime in November 2018.
