Starz is currently offering the first episode of the upcoming second season of “Survivor’s Remorse,” from Executive Producer LeBron James, which doesn’t actually premiere until this Saturday night, August 22.
James began hosting free access to the premiere episode from Season 2 of “Survivor’s Remorse” directly on his Facebook page exclusively for his 22 million followers on Friday, August 14.
“Starz has sampled many new original series on multiple platforms – including Facebook – over the past few years and we continue to witness first-hand the importance of engaging fans in the social media community who have migrated the ‘water cooler talk’ to a much bigger and virtual break room, ” said Starz CEO Chris Albrecht. “The network and our shows, including ‘Power’ and “Outlander,’ are definitely benefitting from the tremendous online community engagement.”
The sophomore season of the half-hour scripted comedy will feature 10 episodes this time – up from its 6-episode first season.
“Survivor’s Remorse” follows Cam Calloway, played by Jessie T. Usher, a basketball phenom in his early 20’s who is suddenly thrust into the limelight after signing a multi-million dollar contract with a professional basketball team in Atlanta. Cam, along with his cousin and confidant Reggie Vaughn, played by RonReaco Lee, move to Georgia to start Cam’s journey to success. The two confront the challenges of carrying needy family members and their strong ties to the impoverished community that they come from. Cam, Reggie and an unforgettable group of characters wrestle with the rewards and pitfalls of stardom, love, and loyalty.
The cast includes Mike Epps, Tichina Arnold, Teyonah Parris, and Erica Ash.
