Hulu has greenlit the half-hour comedy series “Chad Powers” from creators and executive producers Glen Powell and Michael Waldron. The show is based on a sketch produced by NFL Films and Omaha Productions, which aired as part of the Eli’s Places series on ESPN+. The comedy, produced by 20th Television, will be available to stream on Hulu.

Chad Powers” follows the story of Russ Holliday, a hotshot college quarterback whose bad behavior derails his football career. He then disguises himself and joins a struggling Southern football team as Chad Powers, an affable and talented player. Glen Powell and Michael Waldron co-wrote the pilot episode for the series.

Powell and Waldron expressed their enthusiasm for being part of this project, stating, “We’re both diehard college football fans… We’re excited to be part of this team, and can’t wait to get Chad in the game. Think fast, run fast.”
