The LaVar Ball family reality show is actually happening

There’s about to be a lot more LaVar Ball and his family for you to watch — if you’re into it. Deadline is reporting that the Ball family has agreed to star in a docuseries, which is being produced by Facebook.

Details of the project have yet to be announced. Lonzo Ball was selected by the Lakers with the No. 2 pick in the 2017 NBA draft, while his younger brothers LiAngelo and LaMelo have both committed to play at UCLA.

LaVar Ball, the family’s patriarch, turned himself into a household name — seemingly overnight, during the NCAA tournament in March. He transitioned his vociferous courtside cheering into TV appearances in which he claimed he could beat Michael Jordan 1-on-1, and helped promote “Big Baller Brand,” his family’s clothing line.

This is hardly the first time the family has opened their home to cameras. In March they were the focus of a profile by ESPN that looked at the path LaVar put his children on to future stardom.

LaVar also appeared on WWE Raw to promote himself and his family, shortly after the draft. Now it’s coming full circle with the announcement that the Balls will be getting their own TV series.
