Maverick Carter Rumors
LeBron James is taking his talents to the small screen once more with a new series in development for HBO, Deadline reports. The Cavs megastar and his business partner Maverick Carter will produce a half-hour comedy about a sneaker store outside of Los Angeles. The in-development show will come from James and Carter’s Springhill Entertainment, which is responsible for Survivor’s Remorse on Starz and The Wall on NBC.
LeBron James and his business partners have turned another small investment into a fortune. Sources tell ESPN that an investment James, his business partner Maverick Carter and financial advisor Paul Wachter of Main Street Advisors made for less than $1 million in 2012 in upstart fast casual pizza chain Blaze has turned into $25 million.
“LeBron and I have always been about finding companies that we truly believe in and putting real money into them,” Carter said. “We’re not talking putting in $15,000 or $20,000. It’s real money plus the expertise, understanding and knowledge that we bring as well as bringing LeBron’s name and likeness to the product.”
