Showtime has just released the first trailer for LeBron JamesShut Up and Dribble documentary. Narrated by former ESPN personality Jemele Hill and directed by Gotham Chopra, the three-part series will take a look at the social and political activism among NBA players and the league’s place in culture.

The Shut Up and Dribble title was taken from a dismissive comment from Fox News host Laura Ingraham, who criticized LeBron James’ anti-Trump stance. “This is what happens when you attempt to leave high school a year early to join the NBA. Keep the political commentary to yourself. Or as someone once said, shut up and dribble,” she said.

In a press release Showtime stated:

“The controversy [Ingraham's comments] serves as a prologue to the series as it chronicles the modern history of the NBA and its players, starting with the 1976 merger of the freewheeling ABA and the more conventional NBA. The league soon became an incubator for many of its top athletes to grow their brands beyond the court, becoming powerful players in commerce and fashion, and transcending the game to become cultural icons. Shut Up and Dribble charts this evolution through the experience of basketball players, who by taking control of their own destinies have helped to bring about social change and make their own statements in the current political climate.”

Shut Up and Dribble was produced by SpringHill Entertainment partners LeBron James, Maverick Carter and Rich Paul and will debut on Showtime November 3 at 9 p.m. EST.
