*HBO is currently in development on an untitled half-hour single-camera comedy about the sneaker culture phenomenon, from NBA star LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s Springhill Entertainment, reports Deadline.
Written by Shawn Wines (“High Maintenance”) and Lemon Andersen (“She’s Gotta Have It”), the untitled Sneaker Store Project follows two best friends and their wild employees at an up-and-coming sneaker shop outside L.A., where they take on the insane and obsessive world of sneaker culture.
Wines also executive produces with James and Carter; Andersen is co-executive producer.
The project hails from Warner Bros. TV and stems from SpringHill’s multi-year movie, TV and digital deal with Warner Bros.
SpringHill Entertainment’s portfolio includes Starz’s half-hour comedy “Survivor’s Remorse,” which premieres its fourth season on August 20, and game show “The Wall” on NBC.
