When you think about some of the most storied franchises of the NBA, the Los Angeles Lakers is certainly an organization that immediately comes to mind. The team’s past four decades have given hoops fans across the globe some of the greatest moments in all of sports, and we’re going to get a chance to relive it through Hulu‘s newly announced docuseries that has been helmed by Jeanie Buss — the team’s sitting president — and crafted by filmmaker Antoine Fuqua.

The nine-part documentary starts out from the very moment that Jerry Buss acquired the franchise in 1979 and takes through all of the Laker greats from coaches such as Pat Riley and Phil Jackson to the laundry list of iconic players that donned the purple and gold such as Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal.

“When Dr. Buss bought the Lakers in 1979, he sat alone at center court of the Forum and thought of all the possibilities. But even in his wildest dreams, my father could not have imagined what the next decades would bring for our organization, our league and our city of Los Angeles”, Buss said in a statement about the docuseries. “I am thrilled that the true story of the Lakers will finally be shared with the world — and that we are in such capable hands with Hulu and Antoine, a director whose storytelling I’ve admired for years.”

No release date has been announced just yet, but it will hit the streaming service sometime in 2022.
