TLC’s Former Manager Tracey Edmonds and BET founder, Bob Johnson, have announce plans to produce a new film based on reality television show “Basketball Wives.”
“Going much further than the series, the film will have the ability to dig deeper into the personal challenges that couples face while living in the world of professional sports. It promises to be rich and unpredictable in story and will feature empowered characters that will be relatable to a broad audience,” said Edmonds.
The film will use show creator Shaunie O’Neal and her cast of Basketball Wives as a platform to develop an indepth story on a couple dealing with the trials and tribulations of balancing love and a professional job in the NBA.
“Tracey continues to be a top producer in Hollywood and has a vision for bringing together top talent, writers and actors, as proven by the success of Jumping the Broom. I’m looking forward to the release and development of our new project and to bringing this hit show to an audience nationwide,” said Bob Johnson.
