ordered to pilot
DESCRIPTION:
(from Showtime's press release, September 2017) Today, SHOWTIME announced the pilot order for the new half-hour comedy series BALL STREET, starring Emmy(R) nominated and Golden Globe winning actor Don Cheadle (HOUSE OF LIES) and two-time Tony(R) Award nominee and Grammy winner Andrew Rannells (Girls, The Intern). Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg will direct and executive produce the pilot. BALL STREET was created by David Caspe (Happy Endings) and Jordan Cahan (My Best Friend's Girl), who will serve as executive producers and showrunners. Production on the pilot is scheduled to begin in February. The project is a co-production between SHOWTIME and Sony Pictures Television Studios. The announcement was made today by David Nevins, President and CEO, Showtime Networks Inc. BALL STREET takes us back to October 19, 1987 - aka Black Monday - the worst stock market crash in the history of Wall Street. To this day, no one knows who caused it. Until now... BALL STREET is the story of how a group of outsiders took on the blue-blood, old-boys club of Wall Street and ended up crashing the world's largest financial system, a Lamborghini limousine, Don Henley's birthday party, and the glass ceiling.
