Miami Heat v Denver Nuggets

This morning Starz announced they are picking up a new basketball comedySurvivor's Remorse, to series. The show -- which is executive produced by LeBron James, his manager Maverick Carter, and Mike O'Malley (GleeShameless) -- is about two cousins from Philadelphia who must navigate the world of basketball business.

Said O'Malley: "Ever since I got cut from the freshman hoop team at Bishop Guertin High School in 1980, I’ve wanted to write about my love and hatred of basketball ... Starz has given us great freedom to explore an authentic world inspired by Maverick and LeBron." [Deadline and IMDB]
