Set to air on Friday, November 7 at 8pm, on ESPN is “Becoming,” a documentary about worldwide basketball star LeBron James’ trajectory to the top of his game.
Filmed in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, “Becoming” includes rarely seen footage from LeBron James’ earliest days in sports, including the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) where he played youth basketball for the Northeast Ohio Shooting Stars, as well as his record-setting days at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School where he garnered worldwide attention. James, along with those close to him, including lifelong friends, mentors, teammates and former coaches, will share candid memories with his young fans during the special.
Produced in association with ESPN Films and LeBron James’ Springhill Production Company, “Becoming” is executive-produced by James and Maverick Carter, along with John Dahl, Libby Geist and Connor Schell, the creative team behind ESPN’s Peabody and Emmy Award-winning “30 for 30” series.
Gentry Kirby and Erin Leyden are the producers.
