James and Carter’s startup has been producing U.S.-based programming on HBO featuring sports stars discussing sports, music, world events and business.

Uninterrupted recently moved into Canada after forming a partnership with Drake and is looking to widen its audience after reports emerged linking James’ firm with European soccer champions Liverpool.
