"Survivor's Remorse" Teaser : LeBron James may be on the cusp of his third NBA title right now, but he wants you to know that getting there wasn't easy. That's the gist of the Starz comedy James is executive producing -- the network's first foray into the genre -- but you'd never know it from watching the teaser below. Flashing statistic after statistic over images of various basketball hoops, "Survivor's Remorse" looks like it could be a hard-hitting drama taking on the difficult subject of seriously pursuing professional sports as a life choice. It even states the percentage of former players who go bankrupt after five years out of the game is 41 percent, a daunting figure for a lifestyle treated like winning the lottery (though a lot of those people go bankrupt, too). The only problem? "Survivor's Remorse" is a comedy. The other EP's are Tom Werner, who worked on "The Cosby Show" and "That 70's Show," and Mike O'Malley from "Shameless" (a newly anointed comedy) and "Glee" (along with newcomers Maverick Carter and Paul Wachter). Starz also describes it as a "half hour scripted comedy" before laying out a synopsis sounding much closer to an hour-long drama. Read the description and watch the teaser below. With no footage yet of the show, we'll have to wait to get our first read on the show's tone. "Survivor's Remorse" premieres this fall.
