Baron Davis is looking to take his game from the basketball court to the small screen for Fox.
Former Cleveland Cavaliers and New York Knicks player Davis is executive producing a comedy loosely based on his life, which has received a script order from Fox.
The untitled single-camera project, from 20th Century Fox Television, follows Davis as a kid from South Central who receives a scholarship to attend a prestigious suburban school and has to find a balance between these two very different worlds.
Courtney Lilly (“The Cleveland Show,” “My Boys”) is writing the project and executive producing along with Davis. Kate Gordon is also executive producing, with Max Winkler, Jake Johnson and Mary Lee executive producing for The Walcott Company.
Davis has appeared as an actor in the film “The Cookout” and the television shows “The Forgotten,” “The Mindy Project” and “Hot in Cleveland,” and has produced films including “The Pool Boys” and “Crips and Bloods: Made in America.”
