“Anyone But You” and “Top Gun: Maverick” star Glen Powell is set to lead the half-hour comedy series “Chad Powers” for streamer Hulu.

The story follows a hotshot quarterback whose college career ends following a bout of bad behavior. He disguises and reinvents himself as the talented and affable Chad Powers, who walks onto a struggling Southern football team to help them out.

The series is based on a sketch from former NFL QB Eli Manning that aired on the ESPN+ streaming service and is co-created and executive produced by Powell and Michael Waldron (“Loki”).

Waldron is also writing the pilot, whilst 20th Television is backing the project. Powell and Waldron say in a joint statement:

“We’re both diehard college football fans. When we saw Eli as Chad Powers, we knew that was the way into a big, fun story about this world. We’re excited to be part of this team, and can’t wait to get Chad in the game. Think fast, run fast.”

Manning, Peyton Manning, Jamie Horowitz, Ben Brown and ESPN all executive produce.
