A new Disney+ Original series called “Big Shot” is currently in development by ABC Studios. The series will consist of 10 1 hour episodes and will see John Stamos star as the temperamental college basketball coach, who gets fired from his job and must take a teaching and coaching job at an elite all-girls private high school.
The series has been written and executive produced by David E. Kelley and Dean Lorey. Single Parents/Everyone Loves Raymond star Brad Garrett, is also an executive producer on the show, as he pitched the original idea to David E. Kelley.

It’s a great fit for Disney+.”
