Chicago filmmaker behind HBO's 'Winning Time' teases about future Bulls series

It may be the story of the Los Angeles Lakers' dynasty in the 1980s, but it's a Chicago Bulls fan behind the camera.

"Winning Time" returned for its second season Sunday night on HBO. The series follows the rise of one of basketball's greatest dynasties in basketball history, with the story of Magic Johnson and Jerry Buss taking the Lakers to multiple NBA Championships.

Multiple episodes of the show's second season are directed by Chicago-born filmmaker Salli Richardson-Whitfield, who sat down to talk with FOX 32 Entertainment Reporter Jake Hamilton about the potential for a series about the Bulls dynasty.

"I would love to see when Michael Jordan joined the Bulls," Richardson-Whitfield said. "That was such a big thing for us, so I'm in! We're doing that show next year, let's do it!"


"Winning Time" is streaming now on Max.
