A Very American Coup By Michael – Louis Ingram, Editor-in-Chief...
He’s Gone Completely Hollywood
So the word has finally come out and Boston Celtics guard Eddie House has officially gone ” Hollywood!”
House is an eight-year NBA veteran that joined the Celtics in 2007-08 and played a key role coming off the bench for Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo en route to an NBA title.
He also broke the Celtics team record for the best three-point percentage in a season by shooting 44%.
Now Cartoon Network’s new short-form series, “My Dad’s A Pro” — which features nine-year-old Jaelen House — gives a glimpse of what Jaelen’s not so every day life is like as the son of a player on one of the most celebrated teams in NBA history.
“My Dad’s A Pro” premiered on November 4th and each of the 10 four-minute episodes captures the excitement of Eddie House’s number one fan being courtside at a game or what a typical day at home might.
It really is fascinating to see the world through Jaelen’s eyes and how he interacts with his father and the relationship that they share.
Jaelen is the oldest of three boys.
His little brothers Kaden and Kalek are twins and look like their going to provide us with some entertainment during this series as well.
The most amazing thing about “My Dad’s A Pro” is that I couldn’t believe how much content that they were able to get into four minutes.
I definitely left me wanting more and hoping that they can extend it in the future.
This short-form series is the first initiative in a multifaceted partnership between Cartoon Network and the NBA, in which the two entities are developing long- and short-form basketball-themed content across a wide variety of platforms, including online, mobile, VOD and on-air.
The partnership coincides with the longstanding relationship Turner Sports maintains with the NBA to create relevant and compelling content for viewers.
