Last year, we reported that Miami Heat star LeBron James was executive producing a new half-hour series for STARZ titled, Survivor’s Remorse. The dramedy would explore what truly happens when one becomes rich and famous yet feels a sense of guilt for having made it out.
According to Indie Wire, the cable channel has given James and his executive team the green light for the series and plans to begin shooting in Atlanta this spring. The six series first season is slated to air this fall.
Here is a full synopsis of the show:
Through a combination of God-given talent and north Philly grit, Cam Calloway and Reggie Vaughn have achieved fame and fortune that neither could have imagined growing up in one of the toughest neighborhoods in Philadelphia. But success comes with its own challenges, and the cousins and confidantes wrestle with the rewards of money, stardom, love, and occasionally, the guilt of having “made it.”
As previously reported, James will produce the series along with industry vets Mike O’Malley, Maverick Carter, Paul Wachter and Tom Werner, who’s show credits include Roseanne, 3rd Rock from the Sun and The Cosby Show.
Here is statement released by James:
“I have a deep passion for the amazing television being created right now. I love ‘Boardwalk Empire,’ ‘Magic City,’ ‘Scandal’ and ’24.’ When my business partners Tom Werner and Maverick Carter brought up the idea of creating a television series that would capture the story of what happens when you make it out, I jumped at the chance. For Maverick and I even to be where we are right now, given where we came from, is kind of hard to believe. 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.”
