The story of Jeanie Buss, the daughter of Lakers owner Jerry Buss, who morphed from a Playboy pinup to a top business executive at the team, is headed to the small screen. She has joined forces with NBC to develop a drama series about a woman high up in the hierarchy of an NBA basketball team.
The network will give it a â€œWest Wingâ€? feel, showing the inner workings of the teamâ€™s management. Buss will executive produce with TV executive Gavin Polone and feature filmmaker Audrey Wells, who will write and direct it.
Also on board as an executive producer is Linda Rambis, Kurt Rambis's wife.
