HBO is working with multiple Oscar and Emmy winner Tom Hanks on a comedy project, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The half-hour show, "Players," follows the lives of college athletes, the story reports. It will include Hanks’ longtime producing partner Gary Goetzman, which will reunite the pair behind "Big Love" and "Band of Brothers," the piece notes.
Hanks and Goetzman are attached as executive producers, while James Evans and Darryl Scott will serve as producers, the story adds.
Hanks won back-to-back Oscars as lead actor for “Philadelphia” (1993) and “Forrest Gump” (1994), along with three other nominations. He has Emmys as both a director and a producer, with his honored projects including “From the Earth to the Moon” (1998), “Band of Brothers” (2001), “John Adams” (2008) and “The Pacific” (2010).
