Last October we learned that TBS is going to produce a a weekly series about a baseball team with Ron Shelton — of “Bull Durham” fame — as the creative force. It’s called “Hound Dogs,” and last fall it was described as being about “a minor league team and its general manager as they try to handle life’s ups and downs, both in and out of the locker room.”
Based on that description I figured there might be some comedy-drama elements. Maybe some serial storylines that get us all invested. Today I read this:
Darrell Hammond is reportedly in talks for a role in TBS’s pilot Hound Dogs. The project, which has been written by White Men Can’t Jump scribe Ron Shelton, focuses on a struggling baseball team. According to Deadline, Hammond is in negotiations for the role of the team’s mascot. The character, who is described as a big flirt, is forced to wear a dog costume.
I can’t tell if that makes it better or worse than I thought it would be, but I’m starting to think that it won’t be the most complex thing going.
