Disney XD Orders LeBron James Series

Disney XD has teamed with NBA star LeBron James to produce a series featuring inspiring athlete profiles.

The half-hour, ESPN Films-produced series, Becoming, will premiere on the boys-targeted network later this year and will feature extraordinary stories of athletes from around the world. James, who was featured in the pilot episode of the series that aired on Disney XD this past October, will serve as executive producer of the series, said network officials.

"We are thrilled to continue working with ESPN Films and LeBron James on Becoming,” Marc Buhaj, senior vice president, programming and general manager for Disney XD said in a statement “This unique sports-focused series gives our worldwide audiences the inspiring and entertaining personal stories from some of the biggest athletes in the world."
