downeysEXCLUSIVE: I’ve learned that Showtime has put in development a drama from writer Gary Lennon, Robert Downey Jr. & Susan Downey’s Team Downey banner and Sony Pictures TV. I hear the pay cable network landed the project in a competitive situation. Written by Lennon (Orange Is the New Black, garylennonJustified), the untitled drama is set in 1983 and follows a rehab/therapeutic community in Venice Beach where drugs and alcohol have always been part of the local culture. showtime_logo__121211185844__130120002910__130730210613__131210182749Lennon is executive producing with Team Downey’s Robert Downey Jr., Susan Downey and Amanda Burrell, while the company’s Chris Mammolito serves as co-executive producer. Lennon and Team Downey are repped by CAA.
