A shoulder injury ended Ryan Kalil’s season in mid-November, but the Panthers center remains busy with his other job.
In news that flew under the radar here in Carolina, NBC earlier this month bought into a sitcom pitched by Kalil’s production company.
According to Deadline Hollywood, the premise of the as yet untitled comedy “centers on two brothers with a significant age difference who work together, despite being in very different places in their lives.”
It will be written by Matthew and Daniel Libman, the brothers behind “Happy Endings,” a comedy that aired on ABC from 2011 to 2013.
The Panthers, who will likely go offensive tackle shopping this offseason, could give the upcoming show some more real-life material if they brought in Matt Kalil, Ryan’s younger brother who will be a free agent in March.
This is the second high-profile project for Mortal Media, the production company formed by Kalil and Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin earlier this year. In July, the two announced they’re remaking Disney cult classic “The Rocketeer.”
When tight end Greg Olsen was asked if he’s worried his good Kalil is getting to Hollywood, Olsen said:
“I’m not. We’ll keep him from getting too Hollywood, don’t worry. That’s not a problem.”
