Netflix has lately dropped the trailer and release date for its latest Original animated comedy, Hoops.
This basketball story comes after adding Michael Jordan and ‘96 Chicago Bulls documentary The Last Dance.
Hoops features a temperamental high school basketball coach Ben Hopkins (Jake Johnson) who is preparing to turn his awful team into a winner just so he can feel slightly less miserable.
The animated project has some noted talents involved – prolific animation producers Chris Miller and Phil Lord who reunite with their Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse star, Johnson and also serve as executive producers along with Seth Cohen and M. Dickson.
Apart from Johnson as the selfish high school basketball coach, Hoops stars Rob Riggle as Barry Hopkins, Ben’s father; Natasha Leggero as Shannon, Ben’s estranged wife; Ron Funches as Ron, assistant coach and Ben’s best friend; Cleo King as Opal, Ben’s boss and Principal of Lenwood High; and A.D. Miles as Matty, a 16 year old seven-footer.
Created by Ben Hoffman, Hoops will premiere on 21 August, 2020 on Netflix.
