Sports may or may not be happening this summer, but Netflix has a bubble-proof plan: the new animated series HOOPS.

According to Netflix, HOOPS “is an animated comedy sitcom that centers on a hot-headed, foul-mouthed high school basketball coach (Jake Johnson) who thinks turning around his god awful team will take him to the “big leagues” and turn his miserable life around.”

The series will debut on Friday, August 21.

Watch a teaser for the series!

Here’s the voice cast for the new show:

“Jake Johnson as Coach Ben Hopkins: A pathetic, angry, foul-mouthed coach desperate to prove himself, but always looking for an easy way to get the job done. He’s shameless and selfish, and given the opportunity to do the right thing, he fails most of the time.

Rob Riggle as Barry Hopkins: Ben’s father. A former pro athlete turned steakhouse owner. Barry frequently rips his son, and doesn’t respect him, but still wants the best for him.
Natasha Leggero as Shannon: Ben’s estranged wife. She’s got a history of impulsive behavior and rash decisions, but has straightened up her life since leaving Ben and is focused on making her horse farm a success.
Ron Funches as Ron: Assistant Coach and Ben’s best friend. Considerate, quiet and patient, he’s Ben’s polar opposite.
Cleo King as Opal: Ben’s boss and Principal of Lenwood High who doesn’t like her job and is nearly as foul-mouthed as Ben. She’s unlucky in love, superstitious and has a talent for singing.
A.D. Miles as Matty: 16 year old seven-footer whose father abandoned him when he was young. Matty struggles with his body off the court and has a hard time making friends.”
The series was created by Ben Hoffman. Johnson, Seth Cohen, M. Dickson, Phil Lord, and Christopher Miller serve as executive producers.
