Skylar Astin has landed a brand new TV gig already!
According to THR, the 27-year-old Pitch Perfect actor is set to star in an untitled NBA comedy for ABC.
“The buddy comedy is set in the world of the NBA and centers on a rookie who doesn’t speak English and a translator who doesn’t speak basketball.”
The site described Skylar‘s character Jason as “a sweet and slightly wimpy guy who was previously with the Peace Corps. A bit of a loser with no athletic prowess whatsoever,? Jason works as a teaching assistant and, while living in his ?parents’ basement, is tapped by the GM of an NBA team to be the translator for Mo, a new recruit from Botswana. A munchkin among giants in the world of professional basketball, Jason soon discovers that he’s being paid to be a lot more than just a translator. He also has to be the new player’s 24/7 guide/best friend/mentor and protector — and find a way to light a fire under this incredibly tall and talented athlete who seems to lack any drive.”
Skylar‘s show Ground Floor was recently canceled by TBS.
