*Starz has given a series order to the half-hour scripted series “Survivor’s Remorse,” a basketball comedy produced by NBA star LeBron James.
The show is set in the world of professional basketball and, “explores the comedy and drama of an experience that everyone reads about but few understand — what truly happens when you make it out. ”
The series centers on Cam Calloway, a basketball powerhouse in his early 20s who must navigate the limelight after inking a multimillion-dollar contract with a professional basketball team.
James serves as an executive producer, alongside Tom Werner (“Roseanne,” “That ’70s Show”), Maverick Carter, Paul Wachter and Mike O’Malley (actor on “Glee,” writer on “Shameless”), who will also write.
Starz, which will retain all domestic and international multiplatform rights, has ordered six episodes of the series. Production will take place in Atlanta for a planned fall premiere.
