HBO's been great in the past (Wire, Sopranos, Oz, etc), but they've been on the decline. I hope this one bucks the trend, as it looks interesting.

Kind of crazy this is what killed Will Ferrell's and Adam McKay's working relationship after all those years as partners. Thank god he didn't go for Will's drama queen act though and let him be Dr. Buss as that would have killed the entire thing imo and I like some of his movies but he's clearly a horrible match for that role.

Looks to have legitimate potential though so hopefully it comes through!

Will Farrel was originally cast as Dr Buss, and they snubbed him late to bring in John C Reily as the replacement. Good choice I think.

John C Reily looks way better for the part.

I agree, but I hate that Ferrell and McKay are done. Those 2 MFs are hilarious together.

Can't wait to see what Larry Bird and Chick look like!

First time hearing about this. Man, Will got salty over this to the point that he walked away from a business partner and more importantly friend?

*edit* Just read up Will's wiki page. Never knew he was born and raised in Irvine of all places.

Can you confirm this one with a source, please? I have no doubt we will get an epic "Last Dance-esque" Kobe documentary in the near future, but to my knowledge this hasn't been officially confirmed yet. All the other shows you listed have. I think the supposed Netflix/ESPN Kobe doc rumor was based on a fake/fan-made mock art poster that someone posted on social media.

Seems like the Lakers and NBA want nothing to do with this project or any of the portrayal of the characters.

Yup! Should be good. This is the non-commissioned version. The commissioned version of the Showtime book will be coming to Hulu iirc.

Obviously not. They're showing cocaine, hookers and orgies
