The hit Starz series is currently in production on the second season and show creator Mike Oâ€™Malley recently gaveÂ TheWrap an exclusive spoiler. â€œIâ€™m flying to Cleveland tonight because weâ€™re going to shoot LeBron in the show.â€
Oâ€™Malley says that James has been heavily involved in pitching story lines for the series that are loosely based on his personal experiences as the star of the Miami Heat and Cleveland Cavaliers.
â€œProfessional athletes are, in any given city, the heroes of that city. They are the villains in other cities. Thatâ€™s a complex thing for a young man or a young woman to go through. I think LeBron has been great in giving us some perspective as to what thatâ€™s like.â€
Having played basketball nearly all his life and professionally for the past twelve years, Oâ€™Malley shares that James was an integral part of Survivorâ€™s Remorse securing a second season with added episodes.
â€œHe certainly has creative influence on what is authentic, what is accurate, what is real, what a professional athlete goes through based on some of the challenges that heâ€™s gone through.â€
Survivorâ€™s Remorse premieres August 22 at 9:30pm on Starz.
