Miami Heat star LeBron James has conquered the world of basketball, now he’s looking to take over TV. Just months after winning his second NBA Championship, LeBron has been rumored to be producing a show for premium channel Starz entitled ‘Survivor’s Remorse’. While Lebron won’t be starring in the show, he will be one of the executive producers. The show will be about two men from the streets who obtain fame – one an NBA player and one not – and how the deal with friends and family in the wake of their success.
“I think the main thing for me is, first of all, making it out of a place where you’re not supposed to. You’re supposed to be a statistic and end up like the rest of the people in the inner city — [and] being one of the few to make it out and everyone looking at you to be the savior,” James said in a phone interview last week.
James is developing the show with his longtime friends and business partner Maverick Carter, Tom Werner, who produced classic shows like ‘Roseanne’ and ‘The Cosby Show’, and Mike O’Malley who will be a producer and the show’s writer. Should be an interesting opportunity for LeBron. We will keep you posted as the show develops.
