  • LeBron James joins the realm of comedy with Starz sitcom

    Starz is in the process of developing a new half hour comedy series called Survivor’s Remorse with, NBA superstar LeBron James as one of the Executive Producers. Other executive producers for the comedy will include Tom Werner, Mike O’Malley, Maverick Carter, and Paul Wachter. The story will follow two young gentlemen, Cam Calloway and Reggie Vaughn as they strive to make it out of Philadelphia’s toughest neighborhoods. The show will bring together humor and drama in this complex sitcom that chronicles one of fame’s biggest questions, what happens to everyone around you, once you “make it.”

    Deadline Hollywood caught up to LeBron, who commented on the sitcom by invoking the name of Carter, his business manager. “For Maverick and I even to be where we are right now, given where we came from, is kind of hard to believe, he said.” “I felt like it was a story that needed to be told, and nobody can craft a story like Tom Werner. He has an incredible vision for television and I’m really excited to partner with him and the rest of our team.”
