Vin Diesel and his One Race Films production company is going to develop a new TV show called Raising Blind which was just acquired by FX. The new potential series is "set in the world of underground gambling."
The pilot for the series will be written by Ben Younger and Jay Longino, which is based on a story by Josh Marchette, Longino and Younger. One of the best parts about this project is that they got Rounders director John Dahl set up to direct the pilot.
There's a lot of potential here for a great series. Underground gambling has always fascinated me, and I can see how the concept of it could be pretty awesome.
This is will be the first small-screen producing credit for Diesel, who is also producing Fast Five, and the next Fast and Furious film, as well as the next installment of the Pitch Black series.
