ESPN Will Show You The Bronx

ESPN Original Entertainment will develop eight-episode limited series The Bronx is Burning.

The Bronx is Burning is “a nonfiction recounting of baseball’s triumph over the turmoil and hysteria of 1977 New York City, and how one team -- the New York Yankees -- came to embody all of the hopes and fears of an unforgettable summer,” the network said in a prepared statement.

The series -- scheduled to debut on the network in July 2007 -- is being adapted from Jonathan Mahler’s best-seller.
