Teaser: The Inspiring Origin Story of NBA Superstar LeBron James ‘Shooting Stars’

Peacock has released the teaser trailer for ‘Shooting Stars’, the biographical coming-of-age drama centering around the inspiring origin story of LeBron James. It will debut June 2.

Shooting Stars is set in the 1990s, where a young LeBron James and his three best friends — Lil Dru, Willie McGee and Sian Cotton —declare themselves the ‘Fab Four,’ after the famed Michigan Wolverines’ ‘Fab Five’ of that era. From the moment we meet them, we realize this group of friends, under the guidance of coach Dru Joyce, is connected by more than basketball. So, when the coach at the top basketball school in their district threatens to separate them by putting Lil Dru on junior varsity, the Fab Four decide to switch schools to be able to play varsity together, joining the team at a predominantly white Catholic school instead. The community takes this as an insult, but the boys’ dedication to each other is more important than anything else,” reads the synopsis.

“With their new coach, a disgraced former college coach seeking redemption of his own, the boys, along with former rival and new teammate Romeo Travis, will face battles not only on the court but in real life, in their quest to become national champs, and will rediscover that what matters most about the game is the people playing beside you.”

The film is produced by James.
