    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 he got some advice from Artest and asked for the season off to focus on this.

    I like how he semi-tries to not have it be exactly off of him by having the character named Daryl Wade lol. I've heard that it has sidekicks LeBawrne James and Christian Bosh.

    I'm just pissed that I was dumb enough to draft this fool in fantasy. I should have known that he would be getting time to rest all season.

    Sounds like a TV show that will last one season.

    I won't watch it because it'll probably suck.

    Think they'll have an episode about giving your soon-to-be-ex-wife herpes?
    Just because you're offended, doesn't mean you're right.” ― Ricky Gervais.

    What if someone from a school of business or management school were to ask, How did you do this? How did you get the Pacers turned around? Is there a general approach you've taken that can be summarized?

    Larry Bird: Yeah, patience.

    I get the feeling his whacked-out ex isn't going to like this at all.

    I brought this up when it happened, but when he lost his headband in Game 6 (right?) of the Finals last year it was crazy hard much harder he was to identify on the floor watching on TV. Maybe it's just because he's always worn it so I'm used to it, but for a second it was like "who the hell is this dude destroying the Spurs?"

    I tried to come up with a creative name like that but drew a blank really.

    I can't wait for the laugh tracks in that episode! Surely it will end with a somber, "Full House" musical overtoned life lesson and a big hug.

    I cant wait for the episode where Daryl is in disbelief that after all the dangerous fouls he's gotten away with, he gets suspended for kicking "Ray Sessions" in the groin.

    Y'know, this is really a natural progression for Wade. He's been acting on the court for years.

    Judging by his play on the court, I think Wade has a great future in acting. Hell, the entire Heat franchise should quit the NBA and go into showbiz.
