Starz has teamed up with none other than NBA superstar LeBron James for it’s latest scripted series offering and, much like his basketball career, it’s a resounding success. An all new season of the basketball drama Survivor’s Remorse has been ordered and is set to roll in front of cameras. Auditions for several roles in this fan favorite will be taking place soon and casting directors have begun their search for fresh talent for the exciting new episodes.
Survivor’s Remorse tells the story of two men from the gritty streets of north Philadelphia who overcome almost insurmountable odds to achieve their dreams of pro basketball stardom. With their dreams fully realized the men must now deal with everything that comes with their great success, both good and bad and the feeling of guilt of having left behind their poor upbringings. Loosely based on LeBron’s own experiences coming out of the Cleveland area, these stories are gripping, real and fantastically entertaining.
Future hall of famer James and his producing team have lined up a hall of fame ensemble for his acclaimed series featuring the talents of Jessie Usher (When the Game Stands Tall, Level Up, Independence Day 2), RonReaco Lee (Let’s Stay Together, The Good Guys, Madea Goes to Jail), Teyonah Parris (Dear White People, They Came Together, Mad Men), Erica Ash (Real Husbands of Hollywood, Scary Movie 5, Cold Case), Tichina Arnold (Top Five, Happily Divorced, Everybody Hates Chris) and Mike Epps (The Hangover Part III, Next Day Air, The Honeymooners).
A new batch of Survivor’s Remorse episodes is coming and so is a new batch of outstanding audition opportunities for performers of all ages, types and sizes.
