LeBron James To Executive Produce Competition Series6 months ago by Amber Le in TV News
LeBron James has been in high demand, not only in the NBA but in Hollywood as well. Despite adding another production to his roster, literally two days ago, CBS called upon the superstar to executive produce yet another one. This time, it’s a competition series called Million Dollar Mile.
The show is an obstacle course that lasts a mile long and whoever crosses the finish line receives $1 million as a reward. Sounds easy right? Well there’s more to it than just that. There is going to be a team of athletes, who’s mission is to prevent the contestant from completing the competition.
CBS ordered 10 episodes of the show. The series has the same executive production team as Big Brother, Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan. Of course, James’ entertainment company, SpringHill Entertainment will be involved, appointed to oversee the project are Jamal Henderson and Philip Byron, along with Warner Horizon Unscripted & Alternative Television.
