A new David E. Kelley series starring John Stamos is coming to Disney+. 

The prolific executive producer has teamed with Brad Garrett for an hourlong high school basketball series titled Big Shots. 

The dramedy has received a 10-episode, straight-to-series order at Disney+.

Big Shots follows a temperamental college basketball coach (Stamos) who gets fired from his job and must take a teaching and coaching job at an elite all-girls private high school. 

Kelley is penning the script alongside Dean Lorey. Bill D’Elia is set to direct the pilot.

Big Shots is Kelley’s second venture into the world of streaming. He famously exited his first streaming series, Amazon’s Goliath, after clashing with series star Billy Bob Thornton.

Disney+ is set to launch November 12.
