According to LATimes.com, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, as well as actor and fellow HBO “Ballers” executive producer Mark Wahlberg, are involved in a $200 million lawsuit tied to the HBO show “Ballers”. The lawsuit claims “Ballers” “borrows heavily” from a show called “Off Season” which was created back in 2007.

Screenwriters Everette Silas and Sherri Littleton filed the lawsuit against The Rock and Wahlberg, HBO, 7 Bucks Entertainment and Leverage Management. HBO has previously stated that the lawsuit has no merit.
