Sports Medicine Drama from LeBron James in Development at NBC

9 Sept 2016

Fresh off Trainwreck, LeBron James is expanding into television.

The NBA superstar's SpringHill Entertainment has sold its first scripted project to a broadcast network and it's set in the world of sports.

The Warner Bros. Television-based production company has sold an untitled drama to NBC, which has handed out a script-plus-penalty commitment for the project about a brilliant doctor who specializes in treating the world's greatest sports stars. When the doctor undergoes a health crisis, it forces him to rethink his approach to medicine with the help of a gifted sports psychologist. Renowned orthopedic/sports surgeon Dr. James Andrews is on board as an executive consultant.

Matt O’Neill (feature Bait & Switch) will pen the script after courting Andrews for the project. The drama marks his first television sale.

Nicolas Falacci and Cheryl Heuton (Numb3rs) are also on board to write the script alongside O'Neill and will serve as exec producers and, if the drama moves to series, as its showrunners.

SpringHill Entertainment's James and Maverick Carter will also exec produce the drama. The sports medicine drama marks SpringHill's first broadcast network sale after signing a film and TV pact with Warner Bros. last year. The company also exec produces Starz drama Survivor's Remorse, which is based on James' life. On the film side, SpringHill also has Space Jam 2, starring James, in the works.
