DEVELOPMENT STAGE: ordered to pilot
DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release) The people of Chicago aren't just sports fans, they're fanatics. Enter the shrine to da Bears, Quarterback Bobby Cannon's Sports Bar & Grill. Parked on Chicago landmark Navy Pier, this bar is the fans' home away from home. It's the only chance for them to rub shoulders with the great man himself. Bobby Cannon roams his bar with pride of ownership, surrounded by family, friends and fans. Unfortunately one fan is also the new quarterback the Bears drafted to eventually replace him: a young, wholesome, nice kid who's really hard to hate. It's a flag on his life to remind him the clock is running down on his career. Fortunately, Bobby's just beginning to write his autobiography, and his beautiful, literate editor has got him revved up for the challenge of out-throwing, outrunning and outperforming the new kid. She says it'll make a great final chapter. She also turned his advances down cold, but that's another challenge he's ready to rise to. Kevin Sorbo (Hercules: The Legendary Journeys) tackles a memorable new character in the tradition of Sam Malone. Grab a brewski and kick off the season with the next great sports comedy from the producer of the hit series Coach.
