Paramount+ is like that partner you forgot you actually dated. “Oh yeah…I remember that person. They were kind of an asshole.” Anyway, the somewhat nascent streaming service is doing its best to bulk up its movie offerings, and the first images for Fantasy Football are here. Starring Marsai Martin, Fantasy Football centers on the daughter of a Atlanta Falcons running back who learns she can control her dad’s actions on the field. How does she do this? She has a magical game system. No, I’m not kidding. That is literally the plot.
Fantasy Football hits Paramount+ on November 25, 2022.
In this hilarious and heartwarming father-daughter sports fantasy, everything changes when Callie A. Coleman (Marsai Martin) discovers she can magically control her father, Bobby’s (Omari Hardwick) performance on the football field. When Callie plays as her dad, a running back for the Atlanta Falcons, in EA SPORTS™’ “Madden NFL 23,” Bobby is transformed from a fumblitis-plagued journeyman to a star running back bound for superstardom alongside his daughter and wife Keisha (Kelly Rowland). With the NFL Playoffs looming and the pressures of Callie’s new commitment to her friends on the robotics team mounting, the two must forge ahead to keep the magic a secret as they juggle the highs and lows of their newfound success, all as they rediscover what it really means to be a family.
