It’s a good season for Joel Silver. According to Deadline, the producer has sold his second project of the year, a basketball drama, to FOX.
Titled Soar, the series comes from Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer, who previously served as executive producers for Smallville.
Soar will center on “a former NBA prodigy turned felon, who once released from prison, is recruited as the head basketball coach at an upscale high school.”
Last month, it was announced that Silver has sold another drama to CBS. A historical series, Bathory will follow the life and exploits of Elizabeth Bathory, the 16th century Hungarian countess responsible for an estimated 650 deaths.
Silver has previously produced Veronica Mars and Tales from the Crypt.
What do you think? Does Soar interest you? What about Bathory?
