Jalen Rose ABC Pilot

ESPN's Jalen Rose to Star in ABC Pilot From Fresh Off the Boat Creator

It’s Jalen vs. Everybody in an ABC sitcom pilot starring NBA player-turned-ESPN personality Jalen Rose.

Fresh Off the Boat creator Nahnatchka Khan penned the half-hour, single-camera comedy, which follows Rose as he juggles his career responsibilities with the challenges of being a single dad.

Born and raised in Detroit, Rose attended the University of Michigan, where he and teammates formed the legendary “Fab Five.” He then was selected in the first round of the 1994 NBA Draft, by the Denver Nuggets.

Currently, Rose hosts two national shows, ABC and ESPN’s NBA Countdown and Jalen & Jacoby on Sirius XM.

    Don’t forget his XM show is the reason he & others from it appeared on “Celebrity Family Feud”, which makes it all the more ABC’s fault when another job comes along & follows Strahan in the “ABC, Replace Me” line.

    My heart hurts for unemployed actors every time a show like this happens

      Agreed. There is some name recognition, but I haven’t seen a hint of acting talent. It’s not like Strahan, who happens to have a good personality for day-time TV. At least he didn’t jump right into acting like this guy is trying to do. Everyone wants to be The Rock, I guess.
