How cool is this! So Lebron James is going to be the Executive Producer of his own TV show, that he's creating for the Starz Network, and it's going to be based in North Philly! Why you ask? Because Lebron's friend/business partner, Maverick Carter, who is producing the series is from Philly!
It bascially will be about the lives of two men from the streets who attains fame and one doesn't.
Here's what Lebron had to say about why he wanted to do something like this:
"I think the main thing for me is, first of all, making it out of a place where you're not supposed to. You're supposed to be a statistic and end up like the rest of the people in the inner city — (and) being one of the few to make it out and everyone looking at you to be the savior,"
"When you make it out, everyone expects for — they automatically think that they made it out and it's very tough for a young, African-American 18-year-old kid to now hold the responsibility of a whole city, of a whole community. I can relate to that as well," said James, who was 18 when he came to the NBA and is now a 28-year-old veteran.
