Disney+ has set a 2022 production date for season two of “Big Shot,” a basketball dramedy centered on Marvyn Korn (John Stamos) after he is ousted from his position as head coach for an NCAA basketball team.
He is given a chance at redemption with a coaching position at Westbrook, an elite private high school for girls, and soon learns that the teenage players require empathy and vulnerability — foreign concepts for the stoic Coach Korn. By learning to connect with his players and his daughter, Marvyn starts to grow into the person he’s always hoped to be. The girls learn to take themselves more seriously, finding their footing both on and off the court.
“This show represents everything Disney is to me — family, inclusion, and unity,” Stamos said in a statement. “But at its core, ‘Big Shot’ is about guts and heart, and that is what Disney + demonstrated by giving us a second season. I am sending lots of love to the critics and fans that got up on their feet and cheered for us from the sidelines. I’m so grateful to continue to play Coach Korn, a man who learns to let go of pre-conceived judgments and learns from an incredible group of women, helping him to evolve and grow. And yet, he still has so much more to learn. Thankfully he’ll get that chance in season two.”
The series was created by David E. Kelley (“Big Little Lies”), Dean Lorey (“My Wife and Kids”) and Brad Garrett (“Single Parents”) and executive-produced by Kelley, Lorey, Garrett and Bill D’Elia (“Chicago Hope”). Dean Lorey will return as showrunner. The Disney Branded Television series is produced by ABC Signature.
