Starz to Develop Series Exec Produced by LeBron James

Mike O'Malley to write pilot; Tom Werner also on board

Starz is developing a half-hour scripted comedy series, “Survivor’s Remorse,” which will be executive produced by NBA superstar LeBron James.

The series is about two childhood friends who grow up and find success following a childhood in one of the toughest neighborhoods in Philadelphia.

Tom Werner — founder of the Carsey-Werner Co., which produced “The Cosby Show,” “Roseanne,” “3rd Rock From the Sun,” and “That ‘70s Show” — is also on board as executive producer, as well as Mike O’Malley, who will serve as executive producer and writer.

In announcing the show, Starz chief executive officer Chris Albrecht said, “We are incredibly excited at Starz to work with such a deep bench of talented storytellers to develop ‘Survivor’s Remorse.’ Everyone involved brings something unique to the table – from Tom Werner’s legendary television success to LeBron’s extraordinary life experiences and point of view. We hope that ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ will bring the humor, pain and complexity of these characters to life in a way that is honest and compelling for audiences worldwide.”

James’ business partner, Maverick Carter, also serves as executive producer, along with Paul Wachter.
