The show is written by Jim Hecht, Max Borenstein (who also serves as showrunner), and Rodney Barnes. Along with Jason Shuman, Scott Stephens, pilot episode director Kevin Messick, and Adam McKay, Hecht, Borenstein, and Barnes serve as executive producers.
Jim Hecht, the screenwriter for Ice Age 2, flew across the country to the home of sportswriter Jeff Pearlman on April 20, 2014. He proposed a Friday Night Lights-style adaptation of Pearlman’s best-selling Showtime: Magic, Kareem, Riley, and the Los Angeles Lakers Dynasty.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hecht handed Pearlman a nonalcoholic wine, chocolate, and tomato in exchange for the rights to the novel. So, if he said “$30,000,” Hecht remembers being scammed.
Pearlman agreed to let Hecht advertise his book around town in return for a year of exclusivity. In 2015, actor Adam McKay directed and produced the pilot.
In April 2019, HBO approved a pilot for the series, which was written by Max Borenstein with a plot by Borenstein and Hecht. The show was originally titled Showtime, after Pearlman’s novel and the Lakers period that inspired it.
Showtime is one of HBO’s key competitors in terms of premium TV and streaming. Casey Bloys subsequently said that the title would have generated market confusion since one of HBO’s biggest competitors is called Showtime. In December, HBO acquired a program.
Bloys claims it will be named Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty, and it will be called that. McKay and Will Ferrell split out during production because McKay chose John C. Reilly over Ferrell.
Principal photography began on April 12, 2021, in Los Angeles and ended on October 31, 2021.
