Miami Heat v Denver Nuggets

This morning Starz announced they are picking up a new basketball comedySurvivor’s Remorse, to series. The show — which is executive produced by LeBron James, his manager Maverick Carter, and Mike O’Malley (GleeShameless) — is about two cousins from Philadelphia who must navigate the world of basketball business.

Said O’Malley: “Ever since I got cut from the freshman hoop team at Bishop Guertin High School in 1980, I’ve wanted to write about my love and hatred of basketball … Starz has given us great freedom to explore an authentic world inspired by Maverick and LeBron.”
