Facebook readies Bunim/Murray's "Ball in the Family"

Lonzo Ball Mom's Stroke Rehab Featured In Reality Show

LaVar Ball and his three basketball sons continue to be media darlings.

Bunim/Murray Productions has not only produced top entertainment content, but also has led the way in the reality television genre with hit series such as The Real World, The Simple Life, and Keeping Up with the Kardashians. For now, access to Facebook Watch is available to a limited number of USA users in a test rollout, but any Facebook user can access "Ball in the Family" from its dedicated show page on the service. The trailer for the Ball family reality show is here, and the show's first episodes are coming sooner than you think. Mr. Ball made headlines after claiming that Lonzo, who has yet to play in an NBA game, is a better player than two-time MVP Steph Curry and that, in his prime, he himself could have taken on basketball legend Michael Jordan in a one-on-one contest.

"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. Lonzo was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers in the recent NBA Draft, making him the second overall pick of the year.




Ball in the Family is a 10-episode reality show airing exclusively on Facebook Watch. After that, new series episodes will be available on Sundays starting on September 10. The show will chronicle the Balls as they seek to take the National Basketball Association, collegiate and prep levels over by storm all the while building their family-owned Big Baller Brand from their Chino Hills, Calif. base.

Facebook hasn't said how much it's spending on original content.
