LeBron’s TV Show Leaves Philly for Boston Because of the Host of GUTS

That teaser above is for the upcoming Starz show Survivor’s Guilt, executive produced by LeBron James. When we first heard about the show back in September, it was described as a half-hour sitcom that will “explore the lives of two men from the streets who attain fame — one is an NBA star and one is not — and how they deal with friends and families in the wake of that success.” When first announced, it was said that the show would be based in North Philly, but like any dreams we ever had of LeBron in a Sixers jersey, it has been taken away.

According to the Daily News, the show is now based in Boston and filmed in Atlanta. How did this happen? Executive producer and writer Mike O’Malley, who is from Boston, apparently lobbied to have the show set in his hometown. It certainly didn’t hurt that another of the show’s producers, Tom Werner, owns part of the Boston Red Sox. And if Mike O’Malley sounds familiar, it’s because he and the man below are one in the same:


Which now makes sense of Starz’s newest slogan:

Starz: Do d-d-do ya have it? STARZ!

When this premieres, can one of the three-dozen people who has Starz let us know how it is?

    without my agreement. Do you know any solutions to help reduce content from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
