Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James and business partner Maverick Carter will reportedly serve as executive producers on the upcoming DAZN series 40 Days, which is going to follow boxers as they prepare for marquee fights.
On Wednesday, TMZ Sports reported the first installment of the documentary series will feature Canelo Alvarez and Daniel Jacobs as they prepare for their middleweight championship bout in Las Vegas on May 4. The series is scheduled to premiere April 23.
James has taken on several projects away from the basketball court as part of his media company Uninterrupted, and he's also slated to star in the highly anticipated Space Jam sequel.
The DAZN series will likely take on a similar format to HBO's 24/7, which has provided a behind-the-scenes look at different sporting events, including championship boxing matches, outdoor hockey games and the head-to-head golf clash between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.
"These documentaries will shine a light on the three-dimensional aspect of who these athletes are outside of the ring and empower them to tell their own stories as they prepare for some of the biggest moments in their boxing careers," Maverick Carter said in a statement, per TMZ.
James and Carter are working with Golden Boy Promotions founder Oscar De La Hoya on the series.
"This is excellent for the sport as it will provide the kind of unique lens that only LeBron James and Maverick Carter can bring," De La Hoya said. "At the same time, there's no better way for them to start this partnership than by featuring the most important boxing event of the year, so Golden Boy is proud to be a part of it."
No further installments of the series were immediately announced.
