Gabrielle Union’s basketballing beau Dwayne Wade is venturing on to the small screen with a semi-autobiographical sitcom based on his life as an athlete and single father.

The Miami Heat superstar is following in the footsteps of his actress girlfriend and making his mark on television with his own show.

Wade has sold a half-hour comedy based on his New York Times bestselling book, “A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball” to U.S. network bosses at Fox.

The sitcom, titled “Three the Hard Way,” will chronicle a basketball star’s struggled to balance his busy career with life as a single father to two young sons.

Union is also enjoying a little TV good luck in the U.S. – her drama Being Mary Jane was picked up for a second season before the first one even began airing earlier this year.
