Created by Mike O’Malley (Shameless) and executive produced by the likes of LeBron James, Survivor’s Remorse follows phenom Cam Calloway (Jessie T. Usher) as he takes his first steps into the world of professional basketball. While he’s understandably elated at the prospect of fulfilling his dreams and having the opportunity to do right by his community, what Cam doesn’t quite realize is that his status makes him a target of greedy family members and calculating groupies. Along with his cousin Reggie (RonReaco Lee), Cam must navigate aspects of being a professional athlete that he never before considered, aspects that could put an end to his career right as it’s getting off the ground.
In addition to Usher and Lee, Survivor’s Remorse stars the likes of Erica Ash (Scary Movie 5) as Cam’s sister M-Chuck; Tichina Arnold (Everybody Hates Chris) as Cassie, Cam’s mother; Teyonah Parris (Mad Men) as Reggie’s wife Missy; and Mike Epps (Being Mary Jane) as Cam’s uncle Julius.
The series premiere of Survivor’s Remorse is set to air Saturday, October 4th at 9:00 on Starz. You can check out an additional teaser for the series here.
