LeBron James and his production company, Uninterrupted, are teaming up with the producers of Hulu's Fyre Fraud for a new documentary series on the Astros sign-stealing scandal. According to Sports Illustrated, Sign Language will offer fans an inside look at the team and the actions that led to allegations of cheating in the 2017 and 2018 seasons. The series is being produced for new short-form streaming service Quibi. A Quibi press release on the project describes the series as follows:
"The documentary will transcend the baseball diamond to explore larger themes of greed, cheating, corruption, sporstmanship, and social media activism. Sign Language will be the definitive documentary about the scandal that rocked America's pastime."
