Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg and Josh Heald have partnered with Sony TV to develop a comedy series based on the June 2021 Washington Post article "Powerball mystery: Someone in this tiny town won $731 million. Now everyone wants a piece of it." The article, by reporter Marc Fisher, "chronicles the aftermath of a Powerball ticket sold in the small town of Lonacoming, MD (population 1,200), winning $731 million," per Deadline. "Maryland is one of seven states that allow lottery winners to remain anonymous, and the lucky Lonacoming group, who call themselves 'Power Pack,' took advantage of that when they eventually claimed their reward four months after hitting the jackpot. The news turns this small town upside down as the residents work to uncover the mystery of who won the ticket. Nine months later, the mystery has not been solved."
