*Michael Strahan has yet another project set up at ABC in addition to his “Good Morning America” and “$100,000 Pyramid” gigs.
The former “New York Giants” linebacker is developing drama series “Hobbs” with the network, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The project marks his first foray into scripted television.
The drama follows Tommy Hobbs, a former Heisman trophy winner who joins the Miami police force after not being drafted by the NFL, as well as a meticulous, rule-following detective who has trained her whole life to become a police officer.
Michael Caleo (“The Sopranos,”” Rescue Me”) will write the script and executive produce alongside Strahan and his SMAC Entertainment partner Constance Schwartz-Morini. The latter is a former NFL strategist who teamed with the NFL Hall of Famer in 2011 to launch SMAC — a talent management, music, branding and production company.
Next for SMAC is the docuseries “Religion of Sports” due in the fall on the Audience Network.
