SpringHill Entertainment is gaining momentum coming off a summer of several successful projects and script sales. In the past two weeks, the entertainment and content company has sold two scripted series to broadcast network NBC. The first, a scripted comedy project titled “There Goes the Neighborhood,” is a half-hour, single-camera series about the first white family to move into a predominantly black, newly gentrifying neighborhood in Cleveland. The project is executive produced by SpringHill Entertainment’s LeBron James and Maverick Carter along with Bill Lawrence and Jeff Ingold from Doozer Productions in association with Warner Bros. Neil Goldman, Garrett Donovan, and Ron Funches will also serve as executive producers and writers on the project.
The second SpringHill Entertainment broadcast network sale is an untitled sports medicine drama, also picked up by NBC. James and Carter will executive produce the untitled project about a doctor, specializing in treating the world’s greatest sports stars, who undergoes a health crisis that forces him to rethink his approach to medicine with the help of a gifted sports psychologist. Renowned orthopedic/sports surgeon Dr. James Andrews will serve as executive consultant on the project that is also being produced in association with Warner Bros. Television.
“SpringHill Entertainment has come a long way in the last year and a half, and I’m proud of the creative, authentic and entertaining content we continue to create for all types of audiences,” said Maverick Carter, CEO SpringHill Entertainment. “From ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ getting picked up for a fourth season, to the summer success of our aspirational ‘Cleveland Hustles’ series, and with a lot of great upcoming projects in the works, I couldn’t be more excited about the future of SpringHill.”
In addition to the new scripted NBC projects in development, SpringHill Entertainment’s first network primetime game show, “The Wall,” is set to debut on NBC later this year.
