#TayeDiggs to Star in Greg Berlanti-Produced #CW Pilot !

Looks like #triplethreat Taye Diggs is headed to The CW!! He's set to co-star in the network's untitled football drama from writer April Blair.

The show is inspired by the life of pro football player Spencer Paysinger, and follows what happens when a rising high school football player from South Central Los Angeles is recruited to play for Beverly Hills High. Executive produced by Greg Berlanti, the potential series follows what happens when the wins, losses and struggles of two families from vastly different worlds (Compton and Beverly Hills) begin to collide.

Diggs will take on the role of Billy Baker, the head coach of Beverly Hills High's football team. He has an passionate goal to see Spencer, a transfer from Crenshaw, succeed — on and off the field — even if his efforts impact his relationship with his own son.
