LeBron James Is Getting Yet Another Show. Here Are The Details
LeBron James is a busy man.
CBS is reportedly getting a new series with James called “Million Dollar Mile,” which will run for 10 “high stakes” episodes.
“The premise of the show revolves around the streets of a major city being shut down for the ‘Million Dollar Mile,’ or ‘the most challenging course ever designed,’ and a group of elite athletes,” The Hollywood Reporter writes.
LeBron James will be the executive producer of the show and have a significant amount of creative control. Other producers include Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan, the executive producers of Big Brother, a long-running hit reality series on CBS. James and Maverick Carter will also help to produce with SpringHill Entertainment.
“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 of alternative at CBS Entertainment, in a statement.
“Couple that with Allison and Rich’s unrivaled skill for storytelling and game, and we feel like we have a championship-caliber team,” Vuong said.
No word on when the show is due out but with another LeBron James show in the works, you can bet the NBA superstar will be busy. (RELATED: LeBron James To Produce Another Show, Combines Sports And Politics)
