Reggie Rock Bythewood will write the show, which has no confirmed air date at present. Bythewood worked on Shots Fired, the upcoming basketball documentary executive produced by Chance The Rapper.

Swagger's development comes as part of Apple's $1bn venture into original TV content. Durant joins a list of shows coming from the tech giant including a reboot of Steven Spielberg’s anthology series Amazing Stories and a Reese Witherspoon-produced comedy starring Kristen Wiig.
