TMZ reports that WWE star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Mark Wahlberg are being sued for stealing the idea for their hit HBO show, Ballers.

Everette Silas and Sherri Littleton claim that they had the idea for a project titled “Off Season” back in 2007. They said that they were close to a deal with Whalbereg, Johnson and their manager back in 2009 to develop the project but the deal fell through when Silas and Littleton insisted their names remain under “Created By” in the credits.

A rep for HBO told TMZ, “We are confident the case has no merit.”
