Adam Pally and Steph Curry’s ‘Mr. Throwback Begins’ Filming in Chicago Next Month

Steph Curry is trading his Golden State Warriors jersey to be a television star for over a month! The filming of Peacock’s comedy series ‘Mr. Throwback,’ starring Adam Pally and Curry, will begin next month, lasting until June 17. David Caspe, Matthew Libman, and Daniel Libman are the writers behind this forthcoming project. The mockumentary show revolves around a down-on-his-luck memorabilia dealer who seeks redemption by reconnecting with his sixth-grade teammate—a basketball icon who is none other than Steph Curry.

Curry has been a prominent presence in the realm of television after launching Unanimous Media, the production company behind the ABC game show ‘Holey Moley’ and the animated series ‘Good Times.’ Renowned as one of the greatest basketball players, Curry boasts four NBA championships with the Warriors, along with numerous accolades and records. Beyond the court, he has made appearances in various shows such as ‘Stephen vs. The Game,’ ‘Niiice Shot with Stephen Curry,’ and ‘Ballers.’ He also lent his voice to characters in animated series such as ‘Family Guy’ and ‘The Simpsons.’

“Making the natural transition from behind the camera to center stage opposite Adam Pally, we can’t wait for the world to see what we have in store,” Curry previously stated.

Pally is known for playing Max Blum in ABC’s comedy series ‘Happy Endings’ and Dr. Peter Prentice in FOX/Hulu’s ‘The Mindy Project.’ He also portrays The Great Dane in Netflix’s ‘FUBAR.’ He took on the role of Charlie in the comedy film ‘Who Invited Charlie?’ depicting a chaotic encounter that disrupts a New York City family’s tranquil Hamptons retreat. Additionally, he has contributed his voice talents to projects such as ‘Star Trek: Lower Decks’ and ‘Solar Opposites.’

David Caspe co-created the comedy series ‘Kenan,’ which follows a recently widowed father who navigates parenthood with his brother and father-in-law. He is also behind ‘Black Monday,’ a show depicting outsiders challenging Wall Street’s old-boys club in the 1980s. Additionally, Caspe created ‘Happy Endings,’ a sitcom set in Chicago that explores the lives of six young adults navigating the challenges of adulthood together. Matthew and Daniel Libman are known for writing episodes of shows such as ‘How I Met Your Father’ and ‘Solar Opposites.’

Chicago serves as a backdrop for David Fincher’s latest movie ‘The Killer’ and FX on Hulu’s acclaimed drama ‘The Bear.’
