LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are joining forces once again.

The superstar duo will serve as executive producers for "The Redeem Team," an upcoming Netflix documentary on the 2008 United States men's Olympic basketball team, the streaming giant announced Friday.

James and Wade played key roles on the 12-man squad as Team USA captured gold after a disappointing third-place result at the 2004 Athens Games.

"In 2008, I played with heroes of mine, all-stars, friends, and future teammates," Wade told Netflix's Haley O'Shaughnessy. "Outside of winning and showing the world that we were still the most dominant, our other big challenge was changing the perception of what everyone thought about the NBA and USA Basketball!

"I'm excited for everyone to get an opportunity to go behind the scenes and see all the work that went into this iconic team - the Redeem Team!"

The documentary will feature never-before-seen archival footage from the International Olympic Committee and interviews with various members of the American team, including head coach Mike Krzyzewski, Carmelo Anthony, and Chris Paul.

"The Redeem Team" will be available to stream on Oct. 7.
