CBS nabs LeBron James’ competition series “Million Dollar Mile”

 

LeBron James is on a major role in Tinseltown and he’s bringing another project to the small screen.

CBS announced it has ordered ten episodes of the NBA star’s competition series Million Dollars Mile on Tuesday. James will serve as executive producer of the series.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show will give very day athletes a chance to win $1 million each time they complete the “Million Dollar Mile,” which will be a stretch of a different big city each week.

The show revolves around the streets of a major city being shut down for the Million Dollar Mile, “the most challenging course ever designed,” and a group of elite athletes with one mission: Stop the contestants from winning the money at all costs.

“LeBron represents the epitome of strength, vision and determination — all skills one will need to complete this one-of-a-kind course where every runner has a chance to win $1,000,000,” Sharon Vuong, senior vp alternative at CBS Entertainment, said in a statement. “Couple that with Allison and Rich’s unrivaled skill for storytelling and game, and we feel like we have a championship-caliber team.”

LeBron James has several projects heading to the small screen. Aside from his current YouTube series, Best Shot, he’s also bringing a sports-focused docs-series to Showtime.

LeBron James inks deal with HBO for new talk show ‘The Shop’

Shut Up and Dribble will premiere on the network in October and will be a three-part docu-series described as “an inside look at the changing role of athletes in our fraught cultural and political environment, through the lens of the NBA’ according to Deadline. 

The title is especially appropriate considering the dustup the phrase caused when Fox News deplorable, Laura Ingraham, made some severely insulting statements about King James and his activism a few months back.

He has also inked a deal with HBO for his new talk show, The Shop.
