Dwyane Wade, Partners Sell Half-Hour TV Comedy Project To Fox
Heat G Dwyane Wade, Mandalay Sports Media co-Chair Mike Tollin and producer Justin Lin have sold “Three The Hard Way,” a half-hour comedy TV project to Fox, through Sony Pictures Television. “Three The Hard Way” is inspired by Wade’s N.Y. Times best-selling book, “Father First,” in which Wade shares his thoughts about fathers and sons and about his experience of being a single dad to two sons. In the comedy, penned by television writer Ben Watkins, an NBA superstar player and his entourage of friends find themselves parenting by committee when the player gets full custody of his two sons.
Wade, Tollin, Mandalay Sports Media, Watkins and Lin, who worked on several "The Fast And The Furious" films, are all represented by CAA, which brokered the deal. “Three The Hard Way” is the first TV development project for Wade’s ZZ Productions.
