I know what you’re thinking: Why do we need an NBA comedy show when we already have the Lakers and the Knicks?
Because Yahoo is trying to be funny, rather than just having the season get away from them. Yahoo is getting into the streaming, scripted show market, and one of their new shows is “Sin City Saints” about a fictional professional basketball team in Las Vegas.
The show features former NBA players Rick Fox and Baron Davis, plus Malin Akerman, Tom Arnold and Andrew Santino. From executive producer Mike Tollin (“One Tree Hill,” “Smallville,” “Varsity Blues”), Bryan Gordon, Chris Case, and Mandalay Sports Media,
It premieres Monday, March 23 exclusively on Yahoo Screen.
