LaVar Ball’s New Family Reality Show is Coming to Facebook

Can LaVar Ball’s boastful antics and familial dramas draw a TV-size audience for Facebook?




article>LaVar Ball has been surprisingly quiet throughout the month of August. Outside of taking a couple shots at Michael Jordan and taking part in a shooting contest with Ice Cube at a Big3 event, the Ball family patriarch has more or less stayed out of the spotlight. But that’s all about to change.

Ball managed to score a deal with Facebook back in June that would allow him to produce a reality show called Ball in the Family.  The first two episodes, which is a docu-series about LaVar Ball, his basketball whiz-kid sons, and his wife, will premiere Aug. 31 on the social platform. The show was funded by Facebook and produced by Bunim-Murray Productions, the company that brought you reality-TV shows like Keeping Up With the Kardashians and The Real World.

After tomorrow’s debut, new episodes of Ball in the Family will be available every Sunday beginning on Sept. 10.

Judging by the trailer, this looks like a pretty entertaining project. In the clip above, you can see everything from LaVar going off on LaMelo for not taking an AAU game seriously enough, to Lonzo talking with his girlfriend Denise Garcia about how their lives are going to change now that he’s in the NBA, to LaVar working with his wife as she rehabilitates from a stroke.

“We wanted to give our fans an unfiltered look into our lives and show them a side of us that isn’t typically seen,” LaVar said in a statement issued on Wednesday.

Seeing as how LaVar and his family have literally been everywhere this summer, it seems unlikely that we’re going to see anything that surprises us too much.
