Lebron James just might be trolling Fox News’ Laura Ingraham with the title of his upcoming docuseries.

On Monday, Showtime announced that LeBron James will be executive producing a forthcoming three-part documentary series entitled  Shut Up and Dribble, focusing on the evolving role of athletes in the current social and political environment.

The title, Shut Up and Dribble, stems from remarks conservative Fox News commentator Laura Ingraham said about the NBA player and philanthropist in response to his criticism of Donald Trump.

“If being a star athlete is inherently a political experience, Shut Up and Dribble tells that complex and dramatic story from the past to the present and from the inside out,” Showtime president and CEO David Nevins told AOL. He continues, charging that the docu-series “should bring their fans and fellow citizens to a higher level of discourse, rather than the dismissal satirized in the title.”
