The last time LeBron James went viral was during his hometown movie premiere of Trainwreck, as reported by the Inquisitr. In that Funny or Die video, LeBron was seen driving his costars and director around Akron, taking them to the world-famous Swensons burger joint. Now, James can be seen in the new Season 2 trailer of the show he executive produces, titled Survivor’s Remorse.

Fans of the Starz show called Survivor’s Remorse are eagerly awaiting the second season of the comedy/drama, centered around the life of a newly-rich basketball player trying to navigate his newfound riches and the family surrounding him. The character at the center of the show is named Cam, and he has plenty of advice flowing into his brain from his mother, uncle, sister and others who claim they know how to keep him on the straight and narrow path.
As reported by Entertainment Weekly, Survivor’s Remorse has been a huge hit ever since it first debuted in October of 2014. With a whopping 1.3 million viewers, Survivor’s Remorse speaks to those who want an inside peek at the lifestyle of an athlete whose rough upbringing has been transformed in a miraculous manner.
One wonders how much LeBron’s own lifestyle and real-life experiences have affected Survivor’s Remorse. And now, James can finally be seen gracing the scenes of Survivor’s Remorse in Season 2’s trailer.
Mike Epps is a standout character on the show, and For the Win — USA Today reports that Epps wasn’t surprised at LeBron’s acting skills displayed in Trainwreck. Mike plays the fun-loving uncle in Survivor’s Remorse — a guy who’s not too old to still try and chase tail and act as a “woman screener” for Cam on the show.
Fans will have to wait until the Season 2 premiere of Survivor’s Remorse lands on August 22 at 9:30 p.m. ET on Starz in order to see just how large LeBron’s role in the sophomore season of the show will be.
For now, the antics displayed in the second season trailer must suffice for fans of Survivor’s Remorse.
“You punched the money!”
As a result of Survivor’s Remorse runaway success, the Starz network decided to order 10 episodes for the second season shortly after the first premiere episode of the show. With African-American themed shows such as Ballers, Power, and Empire ruling the roost, viewers can expect true-to-life dramas of the same vein to fill in the gaps on TV — and win plenty of fans.
