Vin Diesel Plans “Crushers Club” Boxing Drama

Vin Diesel is teaming with “Mudbound” co-writer and “Criminal Minds” executive producer Virgil Williams to develop “Crushers Club,” a new drama series set at a struggling boxing gym, for NBC.

The gym serves as a second home for kids in one of Chicago’s toughest neighborhoods and gains an unlikely ally in Sonia, a single mom from the suburbs who has found new purpose in her life.

Williams will write in addition to executive producing alongside Diesel and Shana C. Waterman.

Universal Television will produce in association with One Race, their third TV project in the works at the moment following the “Miami Vice” reboot on NBC and “Get Christie Love” on ABC.
