‘Lords of Dogtown’ series in development at IMDb TV

A series adaptation of Lords of Dogtown is officially on the horizon over at IMDb TV.

According to Deadline, Amazon’s ad-supported streamer, IMDb TV is currently in the process of developing a television series based on Sony’s 2005 drama, Lords of Dogtown.

Directed by Catherine Hardwicke and written by Stacy Peralta, the biopic starred Emile Hirsch, Victor Rasuk, John Robinson, Michael Angarano, Nikki Reed, Heath Ledger, Rebecca De Mornay, and Johnny Knoxville and told the story about the rise of surf and skateboarding trends in 1970s Venice, California.

For the series, the plan is to center the one-hour drama around a teenage girl growing up in the foster care system. Also set in Southern California in the 1970s, the forthcoming series adaptation will find the teenage girl befriending a group of skateboarders who also happen to be a huge fan of the Zephyr Skateboard Team, the members of whom were the main focus of the 2005 sports drama.

Behind the scenes, the production has tasked Queen Sugar vet Kat Candler with writing the ensemble drama.

In addition, Catherine Hardwicke (who directed the film) is on board to serve as an executive producer on the series.

Currently, there’s no word on when we might expect to see the Lords of Dogtown series debut, nor is there much information with regards to who might star on the show.
