A Sitcom About Paul Finebaum’s Life Getting Is Getting Ready To Be Produced
Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports
During an interview with The Charlotte Observer this week, ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum revealed that serious work is being done on a sitcom about his life ...
quote:

SF: What is the current status of the talks about a potential sitcom based on your life?

PF: The conversations are getting very serious. There is a major Hollywood production company involved and already several writers are working on the script to be pitched to the major networks soon.

The biggest news is a well-known actor is extremely interested in playing the lead. We did a call recently and it was fairly bizarre having a successful Hollywood actor asking me about me. He is considerably younger, so the idea is to set the sitcom at an early point in my career.

SF: Who’s the actor?

PF: I am proud to announce that Matt Damon will be playing me.

Just kidding. Until we get to the next phase, the producers have strongly encouraged me not to reveal the name.

This show is going to be brutal and embarrassing as hell to Bama and maybe some AU fans but what the hell. Finebaum earned it he was just a Birmingham sports writer that saw two ncaa football fan bases that really demonically hated each other and he made himself famous and well off by trolling the hell out of both of us. I salute the bastard.

Finebaum is an idiot... And like others have said,"who will watch this shite?" I don't like to real person much less a impersonator. Disney must really need content.

People who enjoy sitcoms with laugh tracks are no different from trained seals.

They already tried this once with a sitcom based on Kornheiser and Wilbon. The two characters were played by Jason Alexander (post-Seinfeld) and Malcolm Jamal-Warner. As I recall, it was pretty close to unwatchable, and a miserable flop.

I don't think it lasted more than 6 shows. That was back when the show was mildly entertaining and not too political

Out of all the shite that has happened in 2020, this is the one true sign that the apocalypse is upon us.

Disney/ABC/ESPN have this little bitch in their hip pocket. He's a total sellout. Dude said just the other day that college football would probably move to the Spring. Why? MLB starts on 7/23, but we can't have college football in the Fall? Finebaum will say whatever his corporate overlords tell him to say.

Hopefully i can get cast as Harvey Updyke. It would be the role of a lifetime for me.

Reminds me of the Emeril sitcom, except Emeril played himself. Minor TV celebrity does not equal good sitcom material.

Most people in the SEC don't know who Pawl is. Hollywood does like to make fun of the south and Pawl's callers provide plenty of material.
