FX has acquired Raising Blind from Vin Diesel's One Race Films, with the intent to develop a series set in the world of underground gambling.

The pilot will be written by Ben Younger and Jay Longino, based on a story by Josh Marchette, Longino and Younger. John Dahl, who tackled illicit gambling in Rounders, will direct the pilot.

Diesel and Younger first teamed on the feature Boiler Room. Younger, Dahl, Longino and Marchette will executive produce.

This is the first TV producing credit for Diesel. He also produced on Fast Five, the next installment of The Fast And The Furious films, and the next installment of the Pitch Black series.

    Second that. Really liked BOILER ROOM & Vin in it. Acting wise, I think it might be his best non-action movie, tho I never saw FIND ME GUILTY.
