Veteran actor James Caan will co-star with Kevin Connolly and Vanessa Williams in Fox’s comedy pilot Fantasy Life. The pilot is based on one of the top fantasy experts, ESPN‘s Matthew Berry.
Here is the storyline.
When hard-working Mitch (Connolly) lands his ultimate dream job hosting a fantasy football show, he’s forced to navigate office politics while becoming the star he never thought he could be. Caan plays the tough and humorless Chuck, an ex-legendary football player/coach who’s on Mitch’s new team working on Fox’s fantasy football league show. Chuck doesn’t get fantasy football since he played real football and suffered real pain, however, Mitch eventually impresses him, and the former football star is willing to work with him.
Caan will reunite with 20th TV after starring in the studio’s ABC comedy series Back In the Game.
Connolly will executive produce alongside writer Tim McAuliffe and 3 Arts’ Michael Rotenberg, Jonathan Berry, Greg Walter and Troy Zien.
