The second edition of the unscripted series The Shop, starring LeBron James debuts Friday, October 12 (9:30-10:00 p.m. ET/PT) on HBO.
Also joining James and Maverick Carter for insightful conversation are Philadelphia 76ers 2018 Rookie of the Year Ben Simmons, Indiana Pacers superstar guard Victor Oladipo, highly touted rookie center Mohamed Bamba of the Orlando Magic and five-time WNBA All-Star and MVP Elena Delle Donne of the Washington Mystics.
HBO Sports is collaborating with James and Carter’s award-winning digital media company, UNINTERRUPTED, to present this innovative series. The program offers unfiltered conversation and debate with some of the biggest names in sport and entertainment and airs periodically throughout the year, taking place in barbershops across the USA.
The show gives viewers a one-of-a-kind barbershop experience, which for many provides a sanctuary for free-flowing and spirited discussions. “Anyone who has been in a real barbershop, like the ones where I grew up, knows why this show can be so incredible,” says James. “I’m so excited HBO believed in our idea and is helping us create something special.”
