The LeBron James TV takeover has no signs of slowing down.

 

First, James announced a new special “Shut Up and Dribble” that’s set to air on Showtime this October, and now, the King will be bringing a competition to show to CBS! 

 

Via Variety:

 

The series is currently titled “Million Dollar Mile.” Contestants will have the chance to win $1 million every time they run the Million Dollar Mile. Standing in their way is a challenging course and a group of elite athletes with one mission: stop the contestants from winning the money at all costs.

 

CBS has ordered 10 episodes of the series. The series comes from “Big Brother” executive producers Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan with Fly on the Wall Entertainment along with James and Maverick Carter of SpringHill Entertainment. The series is also produced by Warner Horizon Unscripted & Alternative Television. Jamal Henderson and Philip Byron will oversee the project for SpringHill.

 

 

The 3-time NBA champion will be executive producing the show but no word yet on the premiere date. 

 

LeBron going to Los Angeles was more than just for basketball. He needed to be near Hollywood so he can work on his side hustle, television and it’s admirable.
