Showtime’s much anticipated docu-series Shut Up And Dribble, narrated by Jemele Hill and executive produced by LeBron James, is set to premiere Saturday November 3 at 9 PM ET. In the three-part series, which takes its title from conservative pundit Laura Ingraham’s remarks directed at James in February, Hill tracks the unique journey of the modern Black athlete.
The suggestion that Black athletes should been seen and not heard serves as a prologue to the series as it chronicles the history of the NBA and its players, including the 1976 merger of the freewheeling ABA and the more conventional NBA. 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 use their platform for a broader purpose. After the first episode airs November 3, the remaining two episodes will continue at 9 PM ET November 10 and November 17 exclusively on Showtime.
