Showtime - 1980s L.A. Lakers Drama from Adam McKay Gets HBO Pilot Order

Per deadline, HBO has given a pilot order to drama pilot "Showtime" from Oscar winner Adam McKay (Vice).

Written by Max Borenstein (Godzilla), the true-story project is based on Jeff Pearlman’s nonfiction book Showtime: Magic, Kareem, Riley, and the Los Angeles Lakers Dynasty of the 1980s.

McKay will direct the pilot for Showtime, a fast-break series chronicling the professional and personal lives of the 1980s L.A. Lakers, one of sports’ most revered and dominant dynasties — a team that defined its era, both on and off the court.
