LeBron James and John Legend are teaming up to bring a fan favorite to the TV screen. The I Promise School founder and the newly awarded EGOT, respectively, will be working with writer Wendy Calhoun for a “women-led” CW adaptation of the biographical film, Lean on Me.
The series will have the same name as the film, starring Morgan Freeman as no hards barred Principal Mr. Clark in the 1989 original. It will follow Amarie Baldwin, a young black principal in Akron, Ohio who has hopes of resuscitating a struggling urban school.
