The pilot, which is billed as an interracial family sitcom, follows Jay “Havoc” Hammond — played by Bellamy — an African-American, ex-NFL lineman who recently moved in with his white wife Christy (Newton) and her two oddball sons. The potential series will center around him struggling to win the most challenging game of his life: fatherhood.
Bellamy’s character is described as a tough, ex-NFL player who has retired from the field and is looking to move into the sports announcer side of the business. He tries to respect Christy’s wish that he let her be the disciplinarian to his two step-sons, but when he feels like she’s allowing the kids to get away with too much, he steps in with comic results, but also manages to get through to the kids.
The pilot hails from writer Chris Case who will serve as an exec producer, alongside Chris Spencer, Entertainment 360’s Evan Silverberg and Daniel Rappaport and Malcolm D. Lee who is on board to direct. 20th Century Fox TV is the studio.
Bellamy is repped by Innovative Artists, attorney, Jonathan Shikora at Lichter Grossman Nichols Adler and Feldman and manager Barry Katz.
