AppleTV+ Orders 10 Episodes of Untitled Comedy Starring Owen Wilson

AppleTV+ has today given a series order to an untitled original comedy series starring Owen Wilson (Loki, Midnight in Paris). The first season will produce 10 episodes.

The comedy will follow Pryce Cahill (Wilson), an over-the-hill, ex-pro golfer whose career was derailed prematurely 20 years ago. After he gets fired from his job at an Indiana sporting goods store and his wife walks out on him, Pryce hedges his bets entirely on a troubled 17-year-old golf phenom.

Jason Keller created the comedy, with Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris set to direct. They will executive produce with Wilson, Ben Silverman, Howard T. Owens, Rodney Ferrell, Guymon Casady, Lee Eisenberg, Natalie Sandy and Chris Moynihan. Apple Studios, Propagate Content, Entertainment 360 and Piece of Work will produce.
