LeBron James is headed to Hollywood and he’s putting in all the work he can.
CBS has just ordered a 10 episode competition series from LeBron James’ company, Springhill Entertainment, Fly on the Wall Entertainment and Warner Horizon Unscripted & Alternative Television. The show will take place in the streets of a major city, which will be shut down and replaced with a intense obstacle course and the contestants will have a shot at winning $1M.
“LeBron represents the epitome of strength, vision and determination – all skills one will need to complete this one-of-a-kind course where every runner has a chance to win $1,000,000,” said Sharon Vuong, Senior Vice President, Alternative, CBS Entertainment. “Couple that with Allison and Rich’s unrivaled skill for storytelling and game, and we feel like we have a championship-caliber team.”
“This show takes competition series to a whole new level. It’s intense, it’s entertaining and it has a twist that will have people on the edge of their seats while also creating an opportunity to change the contestants’ lives,” said Maverick Carter, CEO of SpringHill Entertainment. “It’s exactly the type of aspirational content SpringHill Entertainment is about, and we can’t wait for people to experience it.” (Deadline)
