The Sixers are a little less than a month before they gather for training camp. but Rookie of the Year Ben Simmons is already making news.
And it’s not about Kendall Jenner.
NBC has given a script commitment plus penalty to “Brotherly Love,” a comedy from Simmons, LeBron James and his SpringHill Entertainment.
“Brotherly Love” is inspired by Simmons’ life and centers on a unique sibling relationship within a multi-ethnic family. Together, they pursue their dreams while navigating life in the spotlight in Philly, a passionate city where sports is in your blood, and your blood is always boiling.
Simmons was born and raised in Australia to an Australian mother and American-born professional basketball player father. The interracial couple raised their two kids, including Simmons, along with four other half-siblings, including Sean, as one big family.
