Lionsgate just optioned a brand new book, Take A Shot! The Remarkable Story Of Perseverance, Friendship And A Really Crazy Adventure.
That's quit the title!
Basically the book is about the creation of the MLL, Major League Lacrosse.
The show is all about the MLL's three original creators trying to get the league off the ground. It was described by Deadline Hollywood as:
"It tells the story of three men from vastly different worlds- Jake, the brash Hollywood fitness icon and driving force behind MLL; Dave, a shy Ivy Leaguer from blue-collar Detroit and the ultimate fish out of water who ultimately becomes a success story in his own right; and Tim Robertson, the son of a televangelist and a multimedia mogul-who teamed up to try the impossible: start a professional sports league at a time when other leagues were crashing and burning around them. The book chronicles the true story of their search for investors and team owners, the setbacks along the way and the emotional and triumphant debut of Major League Lacrosse, the first professional outdoor lacrosse league."
Sounds like a heck of a show!
It kinda sounds like a bit of How To Make It In America and Entourage too!
All you lax fans out there must be psyched!
Good find, Lionsgate!
