The reality TV bug has bitten Coney Island’s top basketball school.

Abraham Lincoln High School, a program that is rich with basketball history, is the subject of an upcoming reality series, says the New York Daily News.

The series, titled City Hardwood, airs on 8 p.m. every Sunday on NYC life. It documents the Railsplitters’ quest for a PSAL championship.

“We’re so excited to be able to showcase this amazing talent that’s coming out of Lincoln High School,” said Marybeth Ihle, who is the press manager for the NYC Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, which oversees the NYC life channel. “For people who don’t know much about high school basketball . . . (the program will help them) understand how much talent and effort goes into those games.”

Former NBA player Stephon Marbury and current NBA players Sebastian Telfair and Lance Stephenson, all played for the Railsplitters.
