"Sons of Entitlement" To Air On FOX

Feb 22, 2011

Steinbrenner, James Dolan, Jeff Wilpon co-star
 
NEW YORK - FOX will soon unveil a new television series, Sons of Entitlement, starring three colorful characters who imperiously rule over iconic sports teams owned by their fathers, sources told eTrueSports.
 
Set in a fictional city called New York, Sons will star the Knicks' James Dolan (Charles), the Mets' Jeff Wilpon (Fred) and the Yankees' Hank Steinbrenner (George) who, using charm, Hugo Boss and inherited money, will compete over eight episodes to become the first scion to run daddy's team into disrepute and/or bankruptcy.
 
And earn the coveted title of "King of Entitlement." And a fat paycheck.  
 
"Financial ruin, public humiliation, civil lawsuits and possible jail sentences make for great TV," said Rupert Murdoch, owner of FOX and himself the father of three entitled children.
