Disney XD has ordered Becoming, a series from ESPN films that features inspiring athlete profiles, executive produced by LeBron James and his Springhill Prods. It’s slated to premiere on Disney XD later this year.
Aimed at kids and families, the half-hour show will feature extraordinary stories of athletes from around the world. The series was spawned from the Becoming pilot that aired last October and told the story of James’ rise to the top.
In addition to James, Springhill Prods’ Maverick Carter also will exec produce, along with Connor Schell, Bill Simmons, Libby Geist and John Dahl, the team behind ESPN Films’ 30 For 30 series. Gentry Kirby and Erin Leyden are the producers.
