Miami Heat superstar Dwayne Wade has enjoyed a superb career at the very highest level of basketball stardom since being selected by the Miami Heat with the fifth overall pick of the 2003 draft.

With three NBA titles to his name as well as an Olympic gold medal and nine All-Star appearances, the 31-year-old has already cemented a legacy as one of the NBA's elite shooting guards.

And, having conquered the sporting world, it appears as if Wade is looking to further expand his repertoire into the entertainment industry.

According to reports from the Associated Press featured by the Daily News, the former Marquette star has agreed to sell a sitcom based on his life to broadcast network Fox. 

Such a sitcom - initially given the working title 'Three The Hard Way' - is reportedly set to be based particularly on Wade's experiences of fatherhood since winning custody of his two sons in 2011.

Despite not actually appearing in the series himself, Wade has pledged to be closely involved with developments.

“I will be involved. I’ll be very involved," he said.

“I think I’ve got a great writer. I think Ben (Watkins) is a great writer. I think he’s going to be able to pull the comedy out of the dark moments.

"That’s the one thing before I sold my story that I said, I want to be able to bring some light into the dark times and I want somebody who can do that. I think Ben is the guy who kind of can do that.”

When asked just who was set to play Wade's role in the sitcom, he replied: "“Haven’t figured that out yet. But I’m sure it’ll be somebody very handsome.”
