MANILA, Philippines – From basketball to television. Miami Heat superstar LeBron James is set to produce a half-hour comedy series, US cable network Starz announced Wednesday, September 3.

Entitled “Survivor’s Remorse,” the series explores the lives of two men leaving their lives in Philadelphia for a life of fame and wealth.

This is his first venture in television production. In 2011, he previously produced an animated internet series about himself called “The LeBrons” and a documentary film “More Than a Game” in 2008. He will be producing this series together with “The Cosby Show” and “Roseanne” producer Tom Werner.

“I have a deep passion for the amazing television being created right now,” James was quoted as saying in the Starz press release.

Starz has not mentioned when the series will begin airing.

James, widely considered the best basketball player in the world, has won two Olympic gold medals and several NBA awards, including four most valuable player awards. He will be playing in the next 2013-2014 NBA season, which will start in late October. – Rappler.com
