‘Overtime’ Comedy About Retired NBA Player in the Works at ABC

The single-camera comedy “Overtime,” about a retired NBA player, is in the works at ABC from David E Talbert.

In “Overtime,” a celebrated NBA star retires and returns home to play positions he’s managed to avoid throughout his 12-year career: father, husband, neighbor, friend. He’s been pampered his entire adult life, and followed the perfect game plan to great success. Now, away from the spotlight and left to his own devices, he’s facing his toughest opponent yet … himself.

Warren Littlefield (The Handmaid’s Tale, Fargo) is executive producing and Courtney Lilly (Black-ish, Grown-ish) is in negotiations to also executive produce.

Talbert is writing and is executive producing with his wife and producing partner Lyn Sisson-Talbert through their Golden Alchemy Entertainment.

Littlefield, Ann Johnson, Graham Littlefield and Lisa Harrison executive produce through The Littlefield Company.

20th Television is the studio.

The series will air on ABC and stream on Hulu in the United States and is expected to release on Disney+ internationally.
