After setting all the major passing records for the Dallas Cowboys, Tony Romo has become a success as a lead analyst for CBS. Now, the former quarterback of America’s Team is dipping his toes into another area of television.
Romo along with Gossip Girl actor Chase Crawford and Yellowjackets producer Drew Comins are parenting together to bring a football drama series to the Showtime network.
“The show would follow the fictitious first family of football and the players, coaches, and power brokers behind the high stakes world of America’s biggest professional sport,” said Joe Otterson of Variety.
All three men will share executive producer credits on the project. The show will be produced by EntertainmentOne which is the same company that puts out Yellowjackets. It has been said to be a cross between Succession and Friday Night Lights. The project is currently in search of a writer.
Romo is married to Crawford’s sister Candace. The two aren’t strangers when it comes to working together either. In 2016, they teamed up as two of the executive producers for the sports comedy-drama film “Undrafted” which is based on the true story of the brother of the film’s director Joseph Mazzello who missed out on the Major League Baseball draft.
