Basketball's current most famous family, the Balls, are headed to Facebook.

"Ball in the Family" -- which features father LaVar Ball, mother Tina Ball and their three sons, Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, UCLA freshman LiAngelo Ball and Chino Hills High School player LaMelo Ball — is a reality TV series about the basketball crew as their sons prepare to go professional.

The first two episodes of the series will debut on Thursday on Facebook Watch, with subsequent episodes posted every Sunday starting on Sept. 10.

Facebook Watch is Facebook's new TV platform, which lives as a tab on its main Facebook app. Companies including Group Nine Media, Hearst, Condé Nast Entertainment, Refinery 29, Quartz and Tastemade are creating content for the project. It will also be home to live events including MLB games. Shows range in length, with most creators saying their episodes are about five to seven minutes.
