To celebrate the series premiere of WINNING TIME: THE RISE OF THE LAKERS DYNASTY, HBO teamed up with Project Backboard and California artist David Flores to refurbish a local basketball court at Rogers Park in Inglewood, California. The court design will be unveiled during an exclusive, all-day event, with programming to include a community dedication ceremony followed by an influencer skills camp led by celebrity basketball trainer and show consultant Idan Ravin.
The colorful court refurbishment, designed by native California artist David Flores, is inspired by the glitz and glamour of the Winning Time era of basketball and the nostalgic 1980s key art from the show.
The ten-episode series debuts SUNDAY, MARCH 6 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT) followed by additional episodes on subsequent Sundays at the same time. The series debuts on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max.
