NBA's LeBron James to produce US cable TV comedy series
LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Basketball star LeBron James will serve as an executive producer on a forthcoming television comedy series about two men who rise from poverty to fame and fortune, United States (US) cable network Starz said on Tuesday.
Survivor's Remorse, a scripted half-hour comedy series still under development, is the Miami Heat player's first venture in TV production.
James previously produced an animated internet series about himself called The LeBrons in 2011 and the 2008 documentary film More Than A Game.
Fellow executive producers of Survivor's Remorse include Tom Werner, who produced the long-running TV situation comedies The Cosby Show and Roseanne, and Glee actor Mike O'Malley.
