Dwyane Wade sells sitcom based on his life to FOX

But what he really wants to do is direct….

Because there is not enough Dwyane Wade on your television there is going to be a sitcom, too. Wade and partners have sold a sitcom based on his life to FOX, reports Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

The show, which is currently in development, will be called “Three the Hard Way.” It will feature a character named Daryl Wade, who is an NBA superstar responsible for raising his two sons as a single parent.

The show is described as Wade and “his entourage of eccentric friends, find themselves parenting by committee, when he gets full custody of his two young sons. It’s a recipe made for disaster, but no matter how misinformed, misguided, or unfit Team Wade may be, they have a trump card that can’t lose. It’s called love.”

And zaniness ensues. You’ll know if FOX really likes it by if they give it the slot after “New Girl.”

If this takes off Wade could make bank as he has opened his open production company (ZZ Productions, which according to the report “is a partner with Mandalay Sports Media, Perfect Storm Entertainment and Sony Pictures Television” in making this work).

Wade is working hard to expand his brand off the court. He wrote a book on parenthood. He just released a new line of ties and socks. He’s a renaissance man. He should be celebrated for that.

On the court this season Wade’s numbers are down — 16.7 points a game on 48 percent shooting. The Heat are winning and he is still playing well, but his role is shifting some on the team, yet when the playoffs come around they are going to need a healthy and vintage Wade to make it a three-peat.

Which would make a great episode…

    Hopefully it is the spiritual successor to “Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper.”

    Cute story!

    So nice to get away from actual NBA news every other thread.

    Produced by Tyler Perry. Watched by no one.

    Always thought Jamie Hector , the guy who played Marlo Stanfield, looked like Wade.

    The Vegas line: The Wade Show episodes before being canceled (-1.5) Playoff games for the 2013-14 Knicks.
    Who you got?

    Will they portray him dating every starlet in Hollywood, while trying to be a role model to his kids?

      Sure! He’s providing a variety of mother figures. :)

    Isn’t this the guy who was taken off the court on a stretcher when he hurt his finger?

    I hear Bernie Mac is available to play the lead.

    “Three the Hard Way?” I thought for sure it was going to be called “Floppin’ with the Homies”.
