NBA Champion LeBron James is stepping off the court and into Hollywood as the executive producer of a new half-hour series for STARZ. The developing show is entitled Survivor’s Remorse and will explore what truly happens when one becomes rich and famous yet feels a sense of guilt for having made it out.
According to THR, the comedy-drama will follow Cam Calloway and Reggie Vaughn, two guys from Philly who have achieved unimaginable levels of superstardom but also struggle with the cousins and confidants who have not been so fortunate.
“We are incredibly excited at Starz to work with such a deep bench of talented storytellers to develop Survivor’s Remorse,” Starz CEO Chris Albrecht said in a statement announcing the news Tuesday. “Everyone involved brings something unique to the table – from Tom Werner’s legendary television success to LeBron’s extraordinary life experiences and point of view. We hope that Survivor’s Remorse will bring the humor, pain and complexity of these characters to life in a way that is honest and compelling for audiences worldwide.”
Survivor’s Remorse will be produced by Tom Werner, whose producing credits include The Cosby Show, Roseanne, 3rd Rock from the Sun and That 70’s Show. The series will also be produced by Mike O’Malley, Maverick Carter and Paul Wachter.
