Starz released the first promo for season 2 of their summer hit, Survivor’s Remorse. The show premiered last summer with a 6-episode season that was surprisingly funny. The show is a comedy executive produced by Lebron James about young basketball superstar Cam Calloway (Jesse T. Usher), who just signed a multi-million dollar NBA deal with a team in Atlanta. His move to Atlanta brings along his manager cousin, Reggie (RonReaco Lee) and his wife Missy (Teyonah Parris), his crazy but loyal sister M-Chuck (Erica Ash), his very inappropriate Uncle Julius (Mike Epps) and his overbearing mother, Cassie (Tichina Arnold). The family must now figure out a way to deal with the perks and the trials that come with sudden fame and fortune.
The show is really easy to digest and just something that is light, fun and doesn’t take itself too seriously. The new season will start August 22 for a 10 episode run. Be sure to catch the first season on Starz before Season 2 starts.
