An expansive nine-part L.A. Lakers docuseries is headed to Hulu as one of the platform’s new originals. The documentary comes from Lakers’ CEO and controlling owner Jeanie Buss, director Antoine Fuqua, in association with Fuqua Films, as well as Haven Entertainment and Los Angeles Media Fund. The project is still unnamed, but slated for a 2022 debut on Hulu.

The docuseries will chronicle the last four decades for the L.A. Lakers franchise, with appearances from the Buss family, legendary coaches Pat Riley and Phil Jackson, and NBA Hall of Famers Magic Johnson, Shaquille O’Neal, and team captain Kareem Abdul-Jabbar just to name a few.

The series will take a deep look at Jerry Buss’ journey from acquiring the team in 1979, to building the franchise into what it is today. From the “Showtime” era throughout the 1980s, to the Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal-led championship teams, up through the 2020 NBA championship led by LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

“The Los Angeles Lakers are one of sports’ most illustrious franchises. Theirs is a history of epic highs and tragic lows, and generations of legendary players and teams who have made a profound impact, not just on the sports world, but on the culture. We are honored to join Jeanie, Antoine and the whole creative team to bring Hulu viewers the very real inside look at the remarkable story of the rise and fall, and rise again of the Lakers,” said Belisa Balaban, VP, Original Documentaries, Hulu.
