When Lebron James isn’t playing basketball, isn’t invoking karma on Twitter about basketball games, isn’t denying he invoked karma on twitter about basketball games, and isn’t filming commercials in which he makes ridiculous, hyperbolic assumptions about what millions of Americans want or don’t want him to be, he sometimes works on an animated web series and hangs out with Drake.
The Lebrons, a cartoon series created by Spring Hill Productions and Believe Entertainment Group starring the four versions of the Lebron James-based characters introduced in those Klump family Nike commercials, will feature an animated iteration of Drake, voiced by the Grammy-nominated artist. Drake, along with all four Lebrons, will convey life-lessons to children by way of family-friendly cartoon hi-jinkx.
The principals at Believe Entertainment Group, Dan Goodman and Bill Masterson, are no novices to the web series game. They’re the duo that put together Seth McFarlane’s Burger King-sponsored Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy, but will they be able to make a successful and appealing children’s series based on an individual who’s fast growing comfortable with his role as super villain of the NBA? Maybe, in the absence of Lebron elevating his public image, Goodman and Masterson will rise to the occasion.
