Fox is back in the sitcom business. The network has ordered ‘Brothers,’ starring former NFL star Michael Strahan as a retired football player who moves back to his hometown and is reunited with his brother, played by Daryl ‘Chill’ Mitchell, whose promising football career ended because of a car accident.


In an interview in March, Fox President of Entertainment Kevin Reilly called Strahan ‘a natural talent.’

The cast includes CCH Pounder (‘The Shield’), Colton Dunn and Carl Weathers.

Created by Don Reo (‘Everybody Hates Chris’), the series is executive produced by Mitch Hurwitz (‘Arrested Development’ and ‘Sit Down Shut Up’), and the veteran comedy producing team of Eric and Kim Tannenbaum.
