Vin Diesel’s Underground Gambling Series Raising Blind FX

Vin Diesel’s One Race Films production company is moving to the small screen with FX scheduled to air Raising Blind.

It is a series delving in to the world of underground gambling.  Great timing considering this past summer’s news about a Hollywood high stakes underground poker ring coming under fire for allegedly having a role in an investor ponzi scheme.  The likes of Alex Rodriguez, Matt Damon and Toby Maguire were linked to the scheme with Maguire named as a defendant in a complaint filed by said investors.

Set in the world of underground gambling, Diesel is one of a few producers shepherding this pilot to series.  Deadline first reported that FX, a seemingly perfect network for the subject matter and tone of the series, acquired the rights to the pilot written by Ben Younger and Jay Longino, two who will also be joining Diesel in the executive producers' chairs. Younger also scripted the Diesel starring Boiler Room, a very interesting look at the greed, deception and criminality that flourish on Wall Street in major brokerage firms.

Lastly, they've landed John Dahl to direct the pilot episode, which is another perfect fit since his Rounders remains one of the finest cinematic showcases of the underground gambling world.
