We told you last month that those high-paid creative execs at FOX might have outsmarted themselves again by trying to involve former Giants star Michael Strahan in a new sitcom.
Well, that rumor might be coming to life. Way to follow through with those bang-up ideas!
Former pro football player Michael Strahan, who now serves as a football analyst for "Fox NFL Sunday," is trying out his sitcom chops.Sounds like a homerun. (Touchdown?) It's bound to make it to at least a fifth episode.
Strahan is set to star in the laffer pilot "Brothers" (working title), which Fox greenlit on Friday. Also set to star: Daryl "Chill" Mitchell ("Ed"). Ted Wass is attached to direct.
"Brothers" will star Strahan as a retired NFL player who returns to his hometown and starts working to reconnect with his family -- especially his brother (Mitchell), who is confined to a wheelchair following a car accident
