Steph Curry is developing a new basketball comedy.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox has ordered a script for The Second Half, which is described as a multi-camera comedy. The story follows a retired NBA player who moves back home to Charlotte and buys a car wash, but struggles to reconnect with family and friends, including his father, daughter, and ex-girlfriend.
Curry will executive produce the show alongside actor Will Arnet whose credits include Arrested Development, Bojack Horseman, The Lego Movie and The Lego Batman Movie.
The series will be the latest from Curry’s Unanimous Media production company, which scored an overall deal with Fox Entertainment and Sony Pictures TV last year. “I’ve been blessed to have this platform and I want to use it to affect the world positively,” Curry said at the time of landing the deal. “Partnering with Sony to share inspiring content with a global audience was a foregone conclusion.”
The 31-year-old NBA star has another basketball-related show in the works called Benedict Men, a docuseries about the basketball team at St. Benedict’s Prep high school in Newark N.J. The project is currently in post-production and will debut on the mobile subscription service, Quibi.
A premiere date for The Second Half has yet to be announced.
