LeBron James is widely considered one of the greatest athletes of his generation and regarded by some as the best basketball player of all time. James’ extraordinary skills and dedication to the game have won him the admiration of fans across the world and made him an international icon. Coupled with his success on the court, James’ groundbreaking philanthropy, diverse business portfolio and budding content companies have established him as one of the most influential figures in all of sports.
James’ increasing influence in the entertainment industry is namely through his own SpringHill Entertainment. Named after the public housing complex where James grew up in Akron, Ohio, SpringHill Entertainment is an entertainment and content company that develops creative content across a variety of platforms including digital, documentary and feature films, and scripted and unscripted television.
One of SpringHill’s fastest growing ventures is UNINTERRUPTED, the digital media company created by James and his business partner, Maverick Carter, that provides athletes a platform to develop and amplify their stories.
In addition to setting the vision for both companies, James serves as an executive producer on SpringHill’s growing portfolio of aspirational content, including an HBO documentary on Muhammad Ali and a scripted drama series on Madam C.J. Walker with Octavia Spencer for Netflix. Other upcoming projects include “Top Boy” with Drake and Adel “Future” Nur for Netflix, the David Meyers’ helmed feature “Hustle” for Legendary, the action comedy “Public Enemy” with Channing Tatum’s Free Association, a fresh take on the classic “House Party” at New Line and the widely anticipated “Space Jam” at Warner Bros.
