EXCLUSIVE: 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, Justified), 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. Lennon 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.
