'Legacy: The True Story Of The LA Lakers': Hulu Series Drops Teaser Featuring Shaq, Kareem, Magic, LeBron And More

On the heels of Winning Time, the Jeanie Buss-produced and Antoine Fuqua-directed Hulu series has dropped a teaser trailer.

The preview of Legacy: The True Story of the LA Lakers showcases the star power behind the NBA’s most iconic franchise with Shaquille O’Neil, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Magic Johnson leading the way.

The docuseries is executive produced by Lakers CEO and controlling owner, Jeanie Buss, and will capture the rise and success of one of the most successful sports franchises in professional sports.

Other figures such as Buss herself and LeBron James also appear in the series.

Here is the official description of the series:

When charismatic real estate tycoon Dr. Jerry Buss purchased the Los Angeles Lakers in a wildly risky and complex business deal, nobody could’ve predicted just how much success was to come. Kicking off the “Showtime” era in 1979, the notorious L.A.-playboy pioneered the business of basketball. He raised the price of floor seats, introduced dancers and a live band, opened an exclusive private club inside the arena, and cultivated famous fans in Hollywood. Over the last 40 years, the team captured 11 titles and retired the jerseys of some of the NBA’s most legendary players. Today, Dr. Buss’s empire is now worth more than $5 billion. But all of that success did not come easy. Along with notorious feuds, career-ending illnesses, and a bevy of insurmountable on-court obstacles, the Lakers have also weathered intense drama off the court – within Dr. Buss’s own family. Running the franchise as a “mom and pop” operation, Dr. Buss gave his children front office jobs with the understanding they would, someday, inherit his kingdom. But sibling rivalry, interpersonal conflict, and corporate unrest threatened to destroy everything Dr. Buss worked so hard to build. Ultimately, “Legacy: The True Story of the LA Lakers” is about family, business, and power –and how all three must be harnessed to achieve greatness.  

The 10-part series is directed by Antoine Fuqua.

Buss produces the series alongside Fuqua. Other executive producers on the docuseries include Haven Entertainment’s Kevin Mann, Michael Mann, and Brendan Bragg, Los Angeles Media Fund’s Jeffrey Soros and Simon Horsman and longtime Lakers senior executive Linda Rambis.
