Feature heavyweights Jerry Bruckheimer and Michael Bay are executive producing “Cocaine Cowboys”, the drama project which Meredith Stiehm, creator/executive producer of Bruckheimer’s CBS drama “Cold Case,” has come on board to write.
Inspired by Billy Corben’s 2006 documentary, “Cowboys” chronicles the early days of cocaine trafficking in Miami. It is being produced by Warner Bros. TV, where Jerry Bruckheimer TV is based.
WBTV also is on board to run physical production on “Cowboys” if it gets greenlighted. That is believed to be a first for the studio and its corporate sibling network and marks an evolution in the companies’ relationship as Warners expands its cable presence.
