Jerry Bruckheimer, Michael Bay Mull HBO Series

Bay and Bruckheimer, Together Again for HBO?

They brought us Armageddon. They brought us The Rock. And now, they might be bringing us . . . a TV drama about cocaine?

Rumor has it that Jerry Bruckheimer and Michael Bay might reteam for an HBO series. The inspiration for the show is the 2006 documentary Cocaine Cowboys, which focused on Miami's cocaine trade in the 1980s. According to Variety, the series "would focus on the cutthroat world of drug dealers and the Colombian cocaine kingpins who set up shop in the once-sleepy Florida city."

Both of these guys have a lot on their plates these days — Bruckheimer is a producer on what seems like half of all CBS programming and has almost a dozen movies in various stages of development, while Michael Bay is on Transformers duty. So the two of them squeezing a TV project into their schedules would be a pretty big deal.

Meanwhile, I'm now quite intrigued by Cocaine Cowboys itself. The film's director has produced a sequel, and Variety notes that a feature film is in development based on the life of one of the kingpins, with Mark Wahlberg pegged for the lead role. Looks like I'll be putting that in my Netflix queue!

What do you think? Can you picture a Bruckheimer and Bay project on the small screen? Would your TV just explode?

I always find drug movies/tv shows pretty interesting (as long as they're down reasonably well) The idea of a drug cartel is so foreign to me and there is so much drama in it (danger, power struggles etc.) People love to make fun of Michael Bay, especially at my school where he's an alum which kinda shows how much of a joke people think he is. Personally, I thought transformers was pretty cool, so team michael bay?

I have a disdain for most things Michael Bay. But, the subject matter seems like it should make for a good show. And Mark Wahlberg.
