Stephen Curry is contining his ventures into the world of media. First, he signs on to help a movie surrounded around faith & basketball and now, will team-up with ABC to produce a mini-golf competition series. The title of the show will be ‘Holey Moley’. I’m sure it was the 3-time NBA champion who thought of that one.
Curry will serve as executive producer and resident golf pro on the “Holey Moley” course. The on-camera talent will also include “Hangover” star Rob Riggle, who will bring color commentary, ABC and ESPN sportscaster Joe Tessitore, who will act as a play-by-play commentator, and fashion expert and “The Real” co-host Jeannie Mai, who will be a sideline correspondent.In each of the first season’s 10 episodes, 12 contestants will put their miniature golf skills to the test and try their luck on the “Holey Moley” course’s supersized holes. Every episode will consist of three rounds of golf, culminating with three finalists taking on the daunting “Mt. Holey Moley” finale in a three-way contest. Ultimately, one winner per episode will take home the $25,000 prize, along with “The Golden Putter” trophy and coveted “Holey Moley” plaid jacket. Uniquely themed holes will be featured every week, along with special celebrity guest appearances.
I’m still stuck on the fact the name is ‘Holey Moley’. The show will be produced in-part by Curry’s media company ‘Unanimous Media’ and ABC, and the show will debut on the channel. There is no release date right now but Unanimous was founded by Curry in order to develop TV and movies through it. Looks like he’s off to a good start.
