Jayson Tatum is a man of many titles.

Father. Son. Entrepreneur. All-Star. Now, it appears he can add Netflix star to the list.

Netflix is creating a new NBA documentary series, modeled after its NFL “Quarterback” show, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania. The Celtics forward Tatum will join LeBron James, Jimmy Butler, Anthony Edwards and Domantas Sabonis as the players featured for the first season.

Per Charania, James’ SpringHill Company, Barack Obama’s Higher Ground Productions and Peyton Manning’s Omaha Productions have teamed up to produce the series – which has already begun taping.The Netflix summary of “Quarterbacks” included this excerpt:

“The series gives fans an inside look at the players’ lives on the field and off. It documents intimate moments with their families, friends and trainers, following them from the field to their homes in a first-of-its kind, in-depth look at the job.”

Chances are Deuce will make an appearance – if his agent approves, of course. If he doesn’t, we riot.
