HBO SPORTS(R) AND UNINTERRUPTED PRESENT "THE SHOP," UNSCRIPTED SERIES DEBUTING TUESDAY, AUG. 28, EXCLUSIVELY ON HBO

Show Offers Unfiltered Conversation And Debate With Some Of The Biggest Names In Sports And Entertainment First Episode Features LeBron James, Maverick Carter, Snoop Dogg, Odell Beckham Jr., Alvin Kamara, Draymond Green, Candace Parker And Jon Stewart, Among Others

HBO Sports, home to some of the most provocative, award-winning and engaging sports television programming, will collaborate with LeBron James and Maverick Carter's award-winning digital media company, UNINTERRUPTED, to present the innovative, unscripted series THE SHOP, debuting TUESDAY, AUG. 28 (11:00-11:30 p.m. ET/PT) exclusively on HBO. Offering unfiltered conversation and debate with some of the biggest names in sport and entertainment, the show will air periodically throughout the year.

The groundbreaking series features a powerhouse lineup starring four-time NBA MVP LeBron James and Maverick Carter. Among the headliners on the first show are rap icon Snoop Dogg, New York Giants superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., emerging star running back Alvin Kamara of the New Orleans Saints, Golden State Warriors star and three-time NBA champion Draymond Green, Los Angeles Sparks star and two-time WNBA MVP Candace Parker and Peabody and Emmy(R) winner Jon Stewart.

THE SHOP gives viewers an unprecedented barbershop experience, which for many provides a sanctuary for spirited, free-flowing discussions. The series will visit barber shops around the country to gather distinguished individuals who can speak honestly on sports, music, pop culture, world events, business and other culturally relevant topics.

"THE SHOP is exactly why we created UNINTERRUPTED," says LeBron James. "Anyone who has been in a real barbershop, like the ones where I grew up, knows why this show can be so incredible. I'm really excited HBO believed in our idea and is helping us create something special."

"LeBron James told us he wanted to create a place where athletes and artists can come together to share points of view freely," says Peter Nelson, executive vice president, HBO Sports. "We are honored they want HBO to be the home of that conversation. We are pleased to partner with LeBron, Maverick Carter and UNINTERRUPTED on THE SHOP."

THE SHOP will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners' streaming platforms.

For nearly two decades, HBO Sports has been responsible for some of the most compelling unscripted sports programming, with a stylish and contemporary approach keyed by unrestricted access. "Hard Knocks," launched in 2001 in partnership with NFL Films, has won 16 Sports Emmy(R) Awards, and kicks off a new season Aug. 7, while the groundbreaking all-access reality franchise "24/7" has earned 18 Sports Emmy(R) Awards.

THE SHOP marks another programming alliance between HBO Sports and James and Carter's media enterprises. Earlier this year, HBO Sports announced a SpringHill Entertainment production of the college sports documentary film "Student Athlete," set to debut Oct. 2.

THE SHOP is executive produced by LeBron James, Maverick Carter, Peter Nelson and Rick Bernstein; supervising producer, Bentley Weiner.
