The Lakers may be fictionalized.
According to Nellie Andreeva of Deadline.com, television network Showtime is "developing a one-hour scripted drama set behind the scenes of a pro basketball team and the family that runs it."
Jeanie Buss and Linda Rambis are behind the project through their production company, Street Reason Entertainment. Former Lakers coach Phil Jackson and current assistant coach Kurt Rambis will also reportedly be listed as executive producers.
Writer-director Ron Shelton ("Bull Durham," "White Men Can't Jump") will write and run the project.
Although the real-life drama of the Lakers is typically found on the court or in the locker room, the Showtime story will focus behind the scenes in the front office.
