Now We’re Talking, a sports comedy set in the world of professional football, will premiere this spring on go90, a free mobile-first entertainment platform. Created, written by, and starring Tommy Dewey and Tug Coker, the original series comes from content network Uninterrupted and Warner Bros.’ Blue Ribbon Content. Filming will take place in Los Angeles with Malcolm Barrett (Dear White People), Molly Ephraim (Last Man Standing), Fred Melamed (Hail, Caesar!), Kevin Bigley (Sirens) and Eamon Sheehan in supporting roles.
According to Blue Ribbon Content, professional athletes and sports broadcasters will show up in cameo and guest starring roles. Joe Nussbaum (Awkward) is attached to direct and Uninterrupted CEO Maverick Carter is executive producing along with Dewey, Coker, Jamal Henderson, Jennifer Gore, and Nikki Kessler. Season one will consist of seven episodes.
The Now We’re Talking Plot: “The careers of former quarterbacks Tug Tanner (Coker) and Tommy Arondall (Dewey) peaked early, and now they find themselves falling from the top of their game to the bottom of their class in sports broadcasting school. Now We’re Talking will take a comedic look at Tug and Tommy’s post-football relationship, with the former adversaries now forced to work together to try to find success on a new playing field. They stumble at first, but soon begin to help each other attempt to find some dignity in a not-so-dignified world.”
