Dwyane Wade Sells Sitcom to FOX Based on His Life as NBA Player, Single Father

Dwyane Wade blendIt seems Dwyane Wade always has the number three on his mind. Whether it’s a three-peat by his Miami Heat or the number on his jersey, the digit seemingly holds importance for the guard on the court. Now, Wade is taking that number to another arena.

Wade and Sony Pictures Television have sold a half-hour comedy project to FOX called Three the Hard Way, based on Wade’s life as a single dad, according to ESPN. Wade will serve as an executive producer on the show.

The plot lines won’t stray too far from real life, either. The show will tell the story of Daryl Wade — an NBA superstar — and his entourage, who find themselves thrust into the craziness of parenting after the former gains full custody of his two young sons.

The show will clearly play off the notion that dads (and their entourages) are fumbling, bumbling creatures who never ever know what they’re doing 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.”


Wade told ESPN that he hasn’t decided who will play him on the sitcom yet, but said he will be very involved in the production process.

Between the TV show and his new line of ties and socks, hopefully Wade still finds some time to actually play basketball.
