A nine-part series about the Los Angeles Lakers is coming in 2022.

According to a Hulu press release, the series will cover the past four decades of the Lakers franchise, starting with Jerry Buss purchasing the organization in 1979. It will include new interviews from 35 people within the organization, including the Buss family, Pat Riley, Phil Jackson, Magic Johnson, Shaquille O'Neal and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

It will also feature in-depth looks at the "Showtime" Lakers in the 1980s, the Kobe Bryant and Shaq years in the early 2000s as well as the most recent title won by LeBron James, Anthony Davis and more. Jeanie Buss shared more details about the upcoming documentary in a statement:

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. 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.

Buckle up Lakers fans, this should be a good one.
