The National Basketball Association’s impact on global pop culture is the focus of a new three-part docuseries slated to premiere on Showtime in 2018.

Executive producers LeBron James (pictured) and Maverick Carter of SpringHill Entertainment and filmmaker Gotham Chopra have begun production on the series that also explores the modern history of the NBA.

The series is a presentation of Showtime Documentary Films and Showtime Sports. The film project is also executive produced by Rich Paul, Gotham Chopra, Martin Desmond Roe, Chris Uetwiller and Datari Turner.

“We developed the idea for these films because of the incredible, generational impact some of the NBA’s most successful players have had on every aspect of American culture,” said Carter, CEO of SpringHill Entertainment, in a statement.
