David E Talbert is adding a new sports-inspired, single-camera comedy show to ABC’s lineup with Overtime.

He will write and executive produce the series that centers on a retired NBA player. He returns home to play positions he avoided throughout his 12-year career: father, husband, neighbor, friend. After being pampered his entire adult life, he is now facing his toughest opponent yet – himself.

The show will explore the character’s transition away from the spotlight and the challenges he faces in his new role. No casting has been announced as of yet.

Talbert and his wife, Lyn Sisson-Talbert, are executive producing through their production company Golden Alchemy Entertainment, and have a first-look deal for Netflix to write, direct, and produce movies following the success of Talbert’s Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey.
