E.S.P.JEN: NBA -- Next On Lebron's Agenda...A TV Show On The Starz Network?
LeBron has talent off the basketball court as well as on it!
The NBA Champion is collaborating with longtime producer Tom Werner, writer/actor Mike O’Malley, his good friend Maverick Carter and manager Paul Wachter to produce a 30 minute comedy series entitled Survivor’s Remorse.
The show will be about what life is like once you make it. Here's the synposis:
Lead characters Reggie Vaughn and Cam Calloway experience the price of fame and fortune that they could’ve never imagined while growing up in a tough Philly neighborhood. They quickly find out the struggles that come with money, celebrity status, love and sometimes the guiltiness of making it big.
Starz CEO, Chris Albrecht announced the new show on Tuesday and said, “We are incredibly excited at Starz to work with such a deep bench of talented storytellers to develop Survivor’s Remorse.”
Here’s what LeBron himself had to say about his latest project, “I have a deep passion for the amazing television being created right now.”
“ 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.”
Hope all that talent does transfer over to the small screen!
