David Seltzer, who recently wrote HBO’s movie Cinema Verite, is back in business with the pay cable network, this time on the series side. HBO has bought an hourlong project from him and HBO Sports commentator Jim Lampley. The untitled drama is about a family dealing with co-dependence and addiction. Seltzer will write and executive produce with Lampley, whose company Atticus has a deal with HBO, as well as Lampley’s manager Michael Price. In addition to the family drama, which was packaged by ICM, Lampley and Price are executive producing HBO’s upcoming unscripted series On Freddie Roach with Peter Berg and Sarah Aubrey.
