Starz Renews ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ for Season Four

Ratings For the Sitcom Are Up by Double-Digit Percentages Over Seasons One and Two

Starz has ordered a fourth season of comedy series “Survivor’s Remorse” from executive producers Mike O’Malley, Tom Werner, LeBron James and Maverick Carter for SpringHill Entertainment, Paul Wachter, Victor Levin and Hilton Smith. Debuting on Oct. 4, 2014, “Survivor’s Remorse” centers around the lives of Cam Calloway (Jessie T. Usher) and his family after he signs a pro basketball contract and moves his family to Atlanta.

Season three of “Survivor’s Remorse” averaged 2.9 million viewers per episode among all reportable platforms, which is an increase of 20 percent above Season two and 60 percent above season one. The series is also a top-4 scripted program on cable among African-American viewers and a top-6 weekend program on cable among African-American viewers.

“I’m incredibly proud of the team at ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ and what we’ve built,” said LeBron James. “The show grew so much this year, attracting new fans and reaching new levels of popularity. I want to thank all the fans who’ve made ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ a success and the team at Starz for all of their support.”

“We are thrilled to renew ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ for a fourth season,” added Carmi Zlotnik, managing director of Starz. “Critics have consistently called it one of the smartest and funniest comedies on television and we are delighted to see audiences embracing the characters and the storyline with that same enthusiasm. Mike O’Malley and his tremendously talented team of writers and actors boldly tackle today’s most pressing issues, from race, class, sex, and politics, to love and loss, but with such a deft touch that nothing ever feels heavy-handed. In the Calloways, O’Malley has created a modern family bound by heart and humor, who remain completely relatable despite dealing with the ‘pro-money and pro-problems’ that come with Cam’s position as one of the top basketball stars in the nation.”
