Golden State Warriors point guard Steph Curry has teamed up with Will Arnett to produce a basketball-themed comedy series for Fox. As The Hollywood Reporter revealed, multicamera comedy The Second Half has received a script order with Curry and Arnett on board as executive producers.
The series promises to follow a retired NBA player who moves back to his home of Charlotte, North Carolina. Upon coming home, he purchases a car wash and attempts to reconnect with the family he left behind, as well as his ex-girlfriend and best friend from childhood. Sean Clements, who previously worked on Making History and United We Fall, has been tapped to tackle the script and executive produce.
The Second Half is a co-production from Fox Entertainment and Sony Pictures TV. This isn't the first time Curry has branched outside the world of basketball, as he launched his company Unanimous Media in 2018. Since then, he's got a feature-length film titled Breakthrough and his YouTube series 5 Minutes From Home. Additionally, he's on board as a producer for the docuseries Benedict Men and a documentary about the 2016 Charleston Church shooting.
Since The Second Half has only just gotten a script order, it will be quite some time until we hear anything about casting or a potential premiere date. It's unlikely Curry will be involved in the series outside of producing, but there's always the opportunity for a quick cameo.
