Stephen Curry and Adam Pally are set to co-star in a mockumentary project that has been ordered straight to series at Peacock.

The announcement was made during the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena. Titled “Mr. Throwback,” the series is said to follow “a down-on-his-luck memorabilia dealer (Pally) who looks for redemption by reuniting with his sixth-grade teammate, NBA legend Steph Curry.”

David Caspe, Matthew Libman, and Daniel Libman serve as writers and executive producers on the project. Both Curry and Pally will executive produce in addition to starring, with Curry executive producing under his Unanimous Media banner along with Erick Peyton. Universal Television will produce. Unanimous Media is currently under a sweeping deal at NBCUniversal.

The series reunites Pally with Caspe and the Libmans. Pally previously starred in the ABC comedy “Happy Endings,” which was created by Caspe and on which the Libmans were writers. Pally also starred in the YouTube series “Champaign ILL,” which Caspe co-created with the Libmans and Jordan Cahan.

Curry is widely regarded as one of the greatest NBA players of all time, currently serving as point guard for the Golden State Warriors. He has won four NBA championships with the Warriors in addition to multiple other accolades, honors, and records. He has previously played himself onscreen in shows like “Ballers” and lent his voice to the animated series “Family Guy” and “The Simpsons.”

In addition to his roles in “Happy Endings” and “Champaign ILL,” Pally is known for his roles in “The Mindy Project” as well as the “Sonic the Hedgehog” films. He will next be seen in the “Sonic the Hedgehog” spinoff series “Knuckes” at Paramount+.
