Starz has teamed up with NBA superstar LeBron James to create “Survivor’s Remorse,” a comedy based on James’ personal experiences as a basketball phenomenon.

 The six episode series follows Boston native Cam Calloway, played by Jessie T. Usher (WHEN THE GAME STANDS TALL). Cam has just signed a multimillion dollar contract with the unnamed Atlanta basketball franchise. Young and excited, Cam throws down money on a high-rise condo, a truck for his high school coach, and everyday expenses for his uncle, played by Mike Epps (THE HANGOVER III), and sister, played by Erica Ash (SCARY MOVIE 5).

 The series really picks up when Cam and his cousin/agent Reggie, played by RonReaco Lee (MADEA GOES TO JAIL), are confronted with a scandal that could destroy everything they’ve built. Cam’s mother, played by Tichina Arnold (MARTIN), just before leaving her smaller Boston home to go live with Cam, gives away a bunch of stuff to people in the hood. Marcus, played by Mo McRae (LEE DANIELS’ THE BUTLER), owes money to some gangsters and comes across a video tape of Cam getting high and spewing racial profanities and an old notebook of Cam’s, filled with sexual drawings.

 Cam doesn’t want to forget where he came from. Reggie wants him to distance himself from the problems that weigh heavily on Cam’s mind. Cam feels guilty that he can’t solve every issue that someone from his past faces.

This is LeBron James’ second foray into entertainment. The 29-year-old just filmed TRAINWRECK, a comedy directed by Judd Apatow, staring some of Hollywood’s funniest people, is due July 24, 2015.

THE OFFSEASON: KEVIN DURANTNovember 07, 2014


THE OFFSEASON: KEVIN DURANT

THE OFFSEASON: KEVIN DURANT (HBO)

Watching Kevin Durant play basketball is an experience. He can bring viewers through an entire range of emotion in just two hours. Happiness, excitement, awe, heartbreak, hope are the most common feelings that Durant inspires. And he does inspire.

At 6’11”, Durant is an anomaly. Nearly every other basketball player his size doesn’t dribble or take a jumpshot from further than 15 feet. But Durant has no limits on the court.

Durant, who is represented by Jay-Z’s Roc Nation sports agency, teamed up with HBO Sports to produce THE OFFSEASON: KEVIN DURANT, a one-hour special detailing Durant’s summer.

The show starts off the day after Durant’s Oklahoma City Thunder were eliminated from the NBA playoffs on May 31. Durant, with his entourage of childhood and college friends, then packs up and moves to Beverly Hills, to work on his game for the summer.

 

KEVIN DURANT (HBO)


 This isn’t Durant’s first time getting into show business. He starred in THUNDERSTRUCK, a 2012 movie about a high school kid who stole Durant’s ability by touching the same basketball as Durant. James Belushi and Brandon T. Jackson costarred in that. The movie made less than $600,000.

He’s part of a long line of athletes getting into the entertainment business. These stars are trying to grow their brand, which means get in front of as many faces as possible. It’s rarely about the money for Durant, or fellow NBA superstars LeBron James or Carmelo Anthony. They want exposure, during their playing careers. The more people that see them on the silver screen or in primetime, the better. That’s another signature shoe or jersey sold.
