Phil Jackson And Kurt Rambis Executive Producers Of New Showtime Series

Apparently tweeting isn’t keeping former Bulls and Lakers coach Phil Jackson busy enough during retirement. Showtime is producing a new show about a hoops team, and the Zen Master is attached as an executive producer. Per Variety: “Showtime is developing a one-hour scripted series that takes a peek behind the scenes of a professional basketball team, with NBA coaching great Phil Jackson and current Los Angeles Lakers assistant coach Kurt Rambis on board as exec producers. The series will focus on the family that owns the team, according to details provided by the CBS Corp. pay-cable service. Ron Shelton, the creative talent behind such noted sports movies as ‘Bull Durham,’ ‘Tin Cup’ and ‘White Men Can’t Jump,’ will write, direct and exec produce the project.”
