Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's Gary Sanchez Productions are taking their comedy (previously known as P.E.) to HBO.
The show is written by Jody Hill, Ben Best and Danny McBride; it centers on a burned-out former pro baseball player (McBride) who returns to his small Southern hometown where the only job he can find is as a substitute gym teacher, reports The Hollywoood Reporter. Hill will direct the pilot.
No airdate has been set for the show.
