LeBron James teams up with Starz for comedy series

NEW YORK -- LeBron James is no stranger to getting the green light to shoot, but this time it's for a scripted comedy series set in the world of professional basketball.

Starz network is giving the go-ahead for his sitcom, "Survivor's Remorse."

The Miami Heat star will serve as an executive producer of the half-hour show. He will team with Tom Werner, a force behind series such as "The Cosby Show" and "Roseanne." Actor-writer Mike O'Malley will also be an executive producer.

The story follows Cam Calloway, a basketball phenom in his early twenties who is thrust into prominence after signing a multi-million-dollar contract with a pro team in Atlanta.

The series will shoot in Atlanta. Its six-episode first season airs this fall.

The network didn't announce any cast members.
