Springhill Entertainment, the production company founded by NBA superstar LeBron James and Maverick Carter, has signed a two-year overall deal for scripted television with ABC Studios, a part of Disney Television Studios.
James and Carter started shopping for a new home earlier this year after being based at Warner Bros. since 2015. They met with multiple TV studios and streamers ultimately signing with ABC Studios.
“SpringHill Entertainment makes the shows LeBron and I want to watch. We look at every project as a way to connect with our community and ask ourselves if it will entertain and empower them. We want our content to be insightful in every way,” said Carter, CEO of The SpringHill Company. “Disney is an incredible home for SpringHill’s future growth in scripted television. Disney’s variety of platforms, extensive reach, depth of talent, and diversity of audience opens up so much opportunity for us to keep creating great stories.”
