One-hour drama “Lords of Dogtown” from Sony Pictures Television based on the 2005 movie of the same name is in the works at Amazon’s TV, which is set in the 1970s skateboarding scene in southern California. The logline: Written by Kat Candler (“Queen Sugar”), “Lords of Dogtown” is a one-hour ensemble-drama about the 1970s skateboarding scene in Southern California, centered around a hell-raising teenage girl growing up in the foster care system. She falls in with a crowd of skaters who idolize the famed Zephyr Skateboard Team.

Kat Candler is also attached to executive produce the project. Shawn Ryan and Marney Hochman will executive produce under their overall deal with Sony Pictures Television, with Catherine Hardwicke also executive producing.
