A sitcom starring the NBA's Stephen Curry and partly shot in the Bay Area is coming to Peacock this summer, according to a representative for the streaming service.

Between the lines: The longtime face of the Golden State Warriors will portray himself in the show alongside Adam Pally ("Knuckles") and Ego Nwodim ("Saturday Night Live").

State of play: The series follows a memorabilia dealer (played by Pally) who falls on hard times and turns to his sixth-grade teammate (Curry) for help.

Behind the scenes: The four-time NBA champion is slated to produce the show with his company Unanimous Media.

  • "Mr. Throwback" was the previously released name of the sitcom, but a representative for the show told Axios the title will change.
  • As of Tuesday, the show didn't have an official premiere date.

What's next: An official announcement and trailer from Peacock are expected to drop in coming weeks.

Editor's note: This story has been updated to reflect that show representatives now say the sitcom was partly shot in the Bay Area (not that it is currently being shot in the Bay Area).
