Steve Zahn (That Thing You Do, The White Lotus) has signed on to star in the Hulu comedy series Chad Powers alongside Glen Powell (Top Gun: Maverick). The half-hour comedy is based on an Eli Manning sketch that aired on ESPN+.

Co-created and executive produced by Powell and Michael Waldron, the series follows a hotshot quarterback (Powell) whose college career ends after bad behavior. He then disguises himself as the talented and affable Chad Powers, who walks onto a struggling Southern football team.

Zahn will play Jake Hudson, the charismatic Head Coach of the show’s flagging college football program. He’s about to be put out to pasture when along comes the talented oddball Chad Powers (Powell) – and with him, one last shot at glory.

Manning serves as executive producer along with Omaha Productions’ Peyton Manning, Jamie Horowitz, Ben Brown and ESPN. Waldron, who wrote the pilot script, and Adam Fasullo are producing for Anomaly Pictures while Powell is EPing under his production co-banner Brainstorm.
