CBS has ordered a new competition series from executive producers LeBron James and Maverick Carter, Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan, as well as Warner Horizon Unscripted & Alternative Television.
Million Dollar Mile (working title) will challenge everyday athletes’ physical and mental toughness over the most challenging course ever designed and a group of elite athletes with one mission – stop the contestants from winning the money at all costs.
NBA Stars LeBron James, Paul George, Kyrie Irving and Damian Lillard guest star in episodes of Teen Titans Go! and We Bare Bears along with a new basketball themed-episode of Mighty Magiswords in Cartoon Network’s NBA All-Star line-up beginning Friday, February at 6pm/5C.
The second episode of Survivor’s Remorse’s second season set a new high for the show so Starz has ordered a third season.
This week’s episode of the series – about a basketball phenom who brings his family and friends with him as he moves of the ‘hood and finds that pro money can lead to pro problems – grew 18% over season one.
Watching LeBron James improvise on a basketball court can be a thing of beauty, but who’d have believed he was as quick with line improvs in front of a movie camera?
The truth is, he held his own with two improv masters – Amy Schumer and Bill Hader – during the filming of Trainwreck, and the proof is in the pudding. Or at least in the very NSFW video that follows the jump.
Check it out and enjoy. Trainwreck is in theaters now.
Starz has set the series premiere of Blunt Talk (above) and second season premiere of Survivor’s Remorse for Saturday, August 22nd.
Blunt Talk, about an expatriate Brit talk show host who thinks he’s in America to share his wisdom and wit – but is mostly misguided on all levels – premieres at 9/8C.
Survivor’s Remorse, about a basketball phenom who has gotten out of the ‘hood with a big NBA contract and is trying to not forget his roots while attempting to negotiate the many levels of his new life, follows at 9:30/8:30C.
