LeBron James Prepping Game Show for NBC
NBC is looking to an NBA star for its next game show.
The network is teaming with All-Star LeBron James for a game show in which everyday teams of two can compete for life-changing amounts of money, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
James and his Springhill Productions banner are producing the untitled game show, which is in the pilot stage. The series is casting for teams of two — couples, sisters, fathers and sons, etc. — that will compete together for life-altering amounts of money.
Produced by James and Andrew Glassman and his Glassman Media (Average Joe, Three Wishes) shingle, the game show offers people a chance to dramatically change their lives.
The NBC game show marks James' latest foray into TV. He's also an executive producer on Starz's Survivor's Remorse, a comedy inspired by his life that will head into its second season this year.
