A new star-studded reality TV show is tapping into young Chinese people's love of basketball, Chen Nan reports.

Chinese-American basketball player, Jeremy Lin has added a new string to his bow, landing his first role in a Chinese reality show, Dunk of China.

"Tipping off" on Aug 18, the reality show, a co-production between video streaming platform Youku and Zhejiang Satellite TV, gathers more than 160 young Chinese amateur basketball players, who compete in rounds of 3-on-3 until one group is named the victor. The show will be aired weekly on both Youku and Zhejiang Satellite TV.

Lin, the former LA Laker and current point guard for the Atlanta Hawks, along with Chinese celebrities including pop megastar Jay Chou from Taiwan, singer-actor Li Yifeng and national basketball team player Guo Ailun, will serve as one of the team captains in the reality show. The four celebrities will be divided into two groups and will lead the participants in their on-court showdowns.
