Lebron James and Starz Team-Up for New Sitcom

Now there’s something you don’t read everyday.

Weird, right?

Yeah, I’m inclined to agree.

Anyways, Screen Crush recently reported that Starz announced its partnership with Lebron James and is planning to develop a TV show called Survivor’s Remorse.

Here’s a very, very short synopsis:

Survivor’s Remorse is about the story of Cam Calloway and Reggie Vaughn, two cousins who utilize a combination of “God-given talent and North Philly grit” to achieve fame and fortune outside of their difficult upbringing. Their success comes with its own challenges, however, as the pair struggle with the rewards of money, stardom, love, and the guilt of having “made it.” (Synopsis from Screen Crush)

Here’s what James had to say about the matter in a statement:

I have a deep passion for the amazing television being created right now,” said James in a statement. “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.”

James will also be serving as executive producer along with Tom Werner (of The Cosby Show fame). Mike O’Malley (Glee Star and Shameless producer) will also fill the role of executive producer and will be serving as a writer as well.

Well, good for Lebron.

If he and his able to bring another quality show to television, then I am definitely not knocking it or him.

I wish them the best.
