McNabb sells rights to 'throwing with right hand' story to HBO
So moved by the story of Donovan McNabb playing quarterback in the NFL for nine years with his non-dominant hand HBO decided to buy the rights. "We wanted to lock up the rights before another, more inferior network swooped in to take the story," said HEO of HBO, Kathee Leeree. McNabb just recently discovered, from a blood test, that he was left-handed. HBO plans to make a mini-series from the story consisting of six one-hour episodes. The cable network has opened negotiations with Montell Williams(pictured above) to star in the lead role. The award-winning network hopes the show, still unnamed, will replace some of it's recently departed hits including Sopranos.
