Starz’s upcoming comedy miniseries “Survivor’s Remorse” will premiere Oct. 4 at 9 p.m., while the reality offering “The Chair” will debut Sept. 6 at 11 p.m., the network said Friday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour on Friday.
The six-part “Survivor’s Remorse,” which counts NBA star LeBron James among its executive producers, revolves around Cam Calloway (Jessie T. Usher), a basketball player from a rough background who scores a multimillion basketball contract and moves to Atlanta to embark on a life of stardom.

“The Chair,” meanwhile, was created by “Project Greenlight” executive producer Chris Moore and is being billed as an “original filmmaking experiment” that follows two first-time directors who direct two separate films based on the same screenplay. Voters across multiple platforms will determine which director wins the $250,000 prize.
Starz also said Friday that it will offer a free preview of its upcoming time-traveling drama “Outlander” (pictured) on Aug. 2, a week ahead of its Aug. 9 premiere. The first episode of the series, from “Battlestar Galactica” alum Ronald D. Moore, will be available on platforms including Starz’s YouTube and Facebook pages, as well as select cable and satellite outlets.
