Starz stays ballin’ — the (soon-to-be) Lionsgate-owned premium cable channel has renewed “Survivor’s Remorse” for a fourth season.
The LeBron James-produced series tells the fictional tale of Cam Calloway and Reggie Vaughn, who have achieved fame and fortune that neither could have imagined growing up in one of the toughest neighborhoods in Boston. The cousins find that success comes with its own challenges, and the duo must wrestle with both the splendors guilt of having “made it.”
“I’m incredibly proud of the team at ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ and what we’ve built,” said executive producer LeBron James. “The show grew so much this year, attracting new fans and reaching new levels of popularity. I want to thank all the fans who’ve made ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ a success and the team at Starz for all of their support.”
“We are thrilled to renew ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ for a fourth season,” added Carmi Zlotnik, managing director of Starz. “Critics have consistently called it one of the smartest and funniest comedies on television and we are delighted to see audiences embracing the characters and the storyline with that same enthusiasm.”
“Mike O’Malley and his tremendously talented team of writers and actors boldly tackle today’s most pressing issues, from race, class, sex, and politics, to love and loss, but with such a deft touch that nothing ever feels heavy-handed,” he continued. “In the Calloways, O’Malley has created a modern family bound by heart and humor, who remain completely relatable despite dealing with the ‘pro-money and pro-problems’ that come with Cam’s position as one of the top basketball stars in the nation.”
In addition to James and O’Malley, “Survivor’s Remorse” is also executive produced by Tom Werner, Maverick
