TV FAB: Dwyane Wade INKS Deal With FOX For Semi-Autobiographical Comedy On Fatherhood....But Will Siohvaughn And Gabrielle Be Part Of The Script?!
NBA star Dwyane Wade is turning his life story into a comedy for FOX. Find out what the show will be about inside....
NBA All-Star & Champ Dwyane Wade (shown above with sons Zion, Zaire and nephew Dahveon) is turning his New York Times best-selling book A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball into a half-hour comedy for FOX!
According to THR, the upcoming show "Three the Hard Way" is inspired by the life of Dwyane. It will center on NBA superstar "Daryl Wade" and "...his entourage of eccentric friends who find themselves parenting by committee after he gets full custody of his two young sons. It's a recipe made for disaster but no matter how misinformed, misguided or unfit Team Wade may be, they have a trump card that can't be cut lose: love."
"Burn Notice" writer Ben Watkins will pen the script while Dwyane will serve as executive producer through his newly launched ZZ Productions banner.
While we're looking forward to a family-friendly show, we wonder if Dwyane and the writers will "keep it 100" and include some baby mama drama (Siohvaughn Wade and her street sign in downtown in Chicago) and maybe a glamorous movie star allegedly breaking up Daryl's home (paging Gabrielle Union!).
Meanwhile, Gabby (shown above in a Dolce & Gabbana dress and Brian Atwood shows at the 19th Annual Concert Against Hate in DC recently) won't be interested in playing herself, if so, for obvious reasons. Plus, she'll be starring in Being Mary Jane on BET starting January 7th.
