We broke the news last year about the project and now more details have been revealed about LeBron James‘ newest film project, a limited series about the life of Madam C.J. Walker, starring Octavia Spencer.

It’s no surprise Netflix has picked up the series saying, “This is the untold and highly irreverent story of black hair care pioneer and mogul Madam C.J. Walker and how she overcame hostile turn-of-the-century America, epic rivalries, tumultuous marriages and some trifling family to become America’s first black, self-made female millionaire.”

This news marks the third film and television project from the newest Los Angeles Laker (his new show, The Shop, has been picked up by HBO and last year he served as Executive Producer on the NBC game show, The Wall). The 33-year-old now has his eyes set on a House Party remake along with the long-awaited Space Jam sequel.
