Dwyane Wade is putting his self-assigned nickname “Three” to good use on the small screen, as Variety is reporting that the Miami Heat star will executive produce a half-hour sitcom, titled “Three The Hard Way”, for Fox. The premise is based on Wade’s life as a single dad:
Fellow exec producer Ben Watkins (“Burn Notice”) is writing the pilot script, which will tell the story of an NBA superstar named Daryl Wade and his eccentric entourage, who find themselves parenting by committee when the lead gets full custody of his two young sons.
The show is inspired by Wade’s book, “A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball,” in which he talks about parenting his two sons and recounting his own growing-up years and rise to the NBA elite.
So, it’s basically Entourage with kids and no swearing or naked chicks. Got it.
