go90 is doubling down on the sports comedy series “Play By Play.” The Complex Networks’ Rated Red series has been greenlit for its 2 & 3 season, to air exclusively on the Verizon-owned streaming platform. The eight-episode series follows Pete Hickey (voiced by creator Kevin Jakubowski and played by Reid Miller, “The Fosters” on Freeform), a present-day sportscaster, as he looks back on his teenage years and gives the play-by-play account of his awkward adolescence.
Supporting cast members include Tyler Emerson Crim (“My Crazy Ex” on Lifetime) in the role of Pete’s older brother Mike Hickey, Shae LeRae Smolik (“Trafficked”) as Pete’s younger sister Gracie Hickey, Jonathan Bray (“Mad Men”, AMC) in the role of Pete’s father, Steve, and Bridgett Newton (“Silicon Valley”, HBO) as Pete’s mother, Clare.
“I’m thrilled to continue telling Pete Hickey’s story. We had so much fun recreating 1994, we can’t wait to get started on ‘95,” remarked Kevin Jakubowski, creator and executive producer. Other executive producers include Jordana Mollick, Kevin Mann, Brendan Bragg for Haven Entertainment; and Justin Killion and Cory Stern serve as executive producers for Complex Networks
The show heads back into production beginning today.
