The Rock Sued Over HBO Show Ballers

Former WWE Champion “The Rock” Dwayne Johnson is being sued over his HBO hit show Ballers according to a report by TMZ:

Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and HBO just got sued for intercepting the idea for their show “Ballers.”

According to a lawsuit filed in federal court, Everette Silas and Sherri Littleton say they had the idea for a project called “Off Season” back in 2007.

They claim they were close to a deal in 2009 to work with Wahlberg, Johnson and their manager to develop the project … but it fell apart when Silas and Littleton insisted their names remain under “Created By” in the credits.

A rep for HBO tells TMZ, “We are confident the case has no merit.”
