LeBron James Producing HBO Documentary About How NCAA Exploits Student-Athletes


LeBron James didn’t go to college, but he and his business partners are prepared to speak on the exploitation of student-athletes in America.

James is co-producing an HBO Sports documentary on “the exploitative world of high-revenue college sports,” the network announced Monday afternoon. The film, titled “Student Athlete,” will debut on Oct. 2 at 10 p.m. ET on HBO.

James is listed as an executive producer for the film in association with SpringHill Entertainment, the production company that he and business partner/best friend Maverick Carter founded.
“This is an incredibly important story about the institutional denial of basic human rights for these student-athletes,” Carter, the CEO of the production company, said in a statement. “When (producer) Steve Stoute brought us this idea, it was a perfect fit for the kind of stories we want to tell at SpringHill.”
The documentary followed and featured four current and former college athletes, including Kentucky basketball player Nick Richards.
