After appearing in Amy Schumer’s “Trainwreck” and signing a development deal with Warner Bros., LeBron James is now set to co-produce and appear in his own reality show.

The AP reports that the Cleveland Cavaliers forward is producing “Cleveland Hustles” with his close friend and business partner Maverick Carter, who will make some cameo appearances.

The show will give four local would-be entrepreneurs the chance to revitalize a neighborhood in Cleveland with a goal of creating jobs with the four new businesses. The series will debut this summer on CNBC.

James’ company, SpringHill Entertainment, also produces “Survivor’s Remorse” on Starz and “Becoming” on Disney XD.
