Legends-characters

*Comedy Central has given a pilot green light to “Legends,” an animated comedy centering on a trio of high school basketball players who are legends in their own minds – and really, nowhere else.

According to Deadline.com, freshmen benchwarmers and friends Jamal, Grover and Milk try and mostly fail to make an impression at Bluford High, whether it’s on the court or with the ladies.

The project from Bento Box Entertainment was created and developed by animator Brad Ableson (“The Simpsons”), Bento Box head of Creative Development and Original Programming Mike Clements, sports producers Quinn Hawking (ESPN, Fox Sports, NFL Network) and Josiah Johnson (NFL Network, “Jim Rome” On Showtime) as well as writer Michael Starburry (“The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister And Pete”).

Additionally, Hawking will voice Jamal and Johnson will voice Grover and Milk as the two are bringing their experience as former UCLA basketball benchwarmers to the project.
