The two time back-to-back champion will be executive producing a series with Starz about coming out of poverty-stricken neighbors and enter into stardom, according to Indiewire.
Titled Survivor’s Remorse, the scripted comedy and drama series will also be developed by Tom Werner, Mike O’Malley, Maverick Carter and Paul Wachter and will run for a half-hour, according to Indiewire.
“When my business partners Tom Werner and Maverick Carter brought up the idea of creating a television series that would capture the story of what happens when you make it out, I jumped at the chance,” James said, “For Maverick and I even to be where we are right now, given where we came from, is kind of hard to believe. I felt like it was a story that needed to be told, and nobody can craft a story like Tom Werner. He has an incredible vision for television and I’m really excited to partner with him and the rest of our team.”
The press release stated the series will “explore the complexity, comedy and drama of an experience that everyone reads about, but few understand – what truly happens when you make it out.”
A premiere date and starring actors are still tentative at the moment.
