NBA star Kevin Durant has agreed to co-produce a basketball-themed TV drama series that will be part of Apple's programming.

The scripted series, to be called Swagger, will be written by noted screenwriter Reggie Rock Bythewood and produced by Imagine Television and Kevin Durant's Thirty Five Media, a source familiar with the plan said, confirming earlier media reports.

Durant tweeted about the new program, saying "So excited to partner with Imagine and Apple on this series... much more to come." The series will be inspired by Durant's youth basketball experiences, including amateur leagues and families dealing with the opportunities and problems of the richer professional leagues.
