Lebron is showing you that he can do much more than play ball!!
In fact, King James has teamed up with Kevin Hart, on a new T.V series that will debut on the Starz cable network called Survivor’s Remorse! The show will be fimed out in Atlanta and is due to debut at the end of the year.
The story follows Cam Calloway, a basketball phenom, who is thrust into prominence in his early twenties, after moving to Georgia with his cousin Reggie and signing a multi-million-dollar contract with a pro team in Atlanta.
Along with the money came the problems, including situations surrounding opportunistic family members and the strong ties of their impoverished neighborhood and upbringings ensue.
Similar to what “Entourage” did for Hollywood, the half-hour scripted show comes from LeBron James, Tom Werner, Mike O’Malley, Maverick Carter and Paul Wachter, displaying the humor and sorrow of the world of hoops.
Mike O’Malley, a long-time basketball fan, penned the script. He will serve as executive producer, along with James and Werner.
“Ever since I got cut from the freshman hoop team at Bishop Guertin High School in 1980, I’ve wanted to write about my love and hatred of basketball,” said O’Malley. “Starz has given us great freedom to explore an authentic world inspired by Maverickand LeBron. Tom’s legendary TV career and his experiences as a professional sportsowner combined with Paul’s wealth of business and entertainment industryrelationships have given this team a truly strong foundation to build a successful series.”
