Miami Heat

MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – He’s conquered the National Basketball Association twice and now LeBron James is taking his talents to the small screen.

James will be the executive producer of a new half-hour sitcom that will focus on two people who make it big after getting out of Philadelphia’s inner city.

The show will chronicle how the characters adjust to fame and deal with guilt for having made it while their friends still struggle.

James is working on the project with longtime friend Maverick Carter and Tom Werner, the man behind shows like “The Cosby Show” and “Roseanne.”

The show, titled “Survivor’s Remorse” will be aired on the Stars network.
