In the lawsuit, Adventure Enterprises says it pitched James on the idea and had several discussions with Uninterrupted.

"According to the lawsuit, LeBron went and cut Adventure Enterprises out of the picture and created a ripoff show called 'The Shop, ' featuring LeBron in a barbershop with his contemporaries, 'while engaging in an intimate conversation describing cultural experiences.' The show aired as a webisode".

The suit claims that over a period of two years, Adventure Enterprises engaged in "numerous talks" with UNINTERRUPTED in order to "flesh out the idea and figure out a strategy for pitching it to various networks", according to details of the suit published by TMZ Sports.

According to TMZ, Adventure Enterprises is seeking an injunction to stop James and his company from producing any more episodes in addition to financial compensation. They're also looking for "some serious cash", the gossip site reports.

Since UNINTERRUPTED reached out to Alabama, the school released a second episode of "Shop Talk" but renamed the show "Bama Cuts".

The debut episode of "The Shop", ran during the 2017 NBA Finals and featured James, Warriors forward Draymond Green, rapper 2 Chainz and retired Knicks star Charles Oakley.
