"Hulu presents Legacy: The True Story Of The L.A. Lakers – Official Web Series Teaser Trailer #1 [HD]"
Synopsis: When charismatic real estate tycoon Dr. Jerry Buss purchased the Los Angeles Lakers in a wildly risky and complex business deal, nobody could've predicted just how much success was to come. Kicking off the "Showtime" era in 1979, the notorious L.A.-playboy pioneered the business of basketball. He raised the price of floor seats, introduced dancers and a live band, opened an exclusive private club inside the arena, and cultivated famous fans in Hollywood. Over the last 40 years, the team captured 11 titles and retired the jerseys of some of the NBA's most legendary players. Today, Dr. Buss's empire is now worth more than $5 billion. But all of that success did not come easy. Along with notorious feuds, career-ending illnesses, and a bevy of insurmountable on-court obstacles, the Lakers have also weathered intense drama off the court – within Dr. Buss's own family. Running the franchise as a "mom and pop" operation, Dr. Buss gave his children front office jobs with the understanding they would, someday, inherit his kingdom. But sibling rivalry, interpersonal conflict, and corporate unrest threatened to destroy everything Dr. Buss worked so hard to build. Ultimately, "Legacy: The True Story Of The L.A. Lakers" is about family, business, and power -and how all three must be harnessed to achieve greatness.
