Corddry expected Ballers to be a hit all because of The Rock. “He’s a recipe for success, if nothing else,” he says. As for his Childrens Hospital spinoff, he says, “It’s everything that Childrens Hospital was in terms of comedic tone, but everything it wasn’t in terms of everything else.

And where it all took place in a children’s hospital, this is going to be kind of a global thriller from country to country.” PLUS: How Ballers makes L.A. look like Miami.
