Paramount+ today announced that its upcoming family sports comedy, Fantasy Football, will exclusively premiere on the service beginning Friday, Nov. 25. Talk about a game-winning touchdown! 

Starring and produced by Marsai Martin (Little), joined by Omari Hardwick (Army of the Dead, Pieces of Her), Kelly Rowland (American Soul), and Rome Flynn (How to Get Away with Murder), this hilarious and heartwarming father-daughter sports fantasy will have you laughing, cheering, and wiping away the occasional tear when Callie A. Coleman (Marsai Martin) discovers she can magically control her father, Bobby's (Omari Hardwick), performance on the football field.

Callie plays as her dad, a running back for the Atlanta Falcons, in EA SPORTS Madden NFL 23, transforming Bobby from a fumblitis-plagued journeyman to a star running back bound for superstardom alongside his daughter and wife Keisha (Kelly Rowland). With the NFL Playoffs looming and the pressures of Callie's new commitment to her friends on the robotics team mounting, the two must forge ahead to keep the magic a secret as they juggle the highs and lows of their newfound success, all as they rediscover what it really means to be a family.

The comedic family sports fantasy film also stars Elijah Richardson, Hanani Taylor, Abigail Killmeier, Tyla Harris and Isac Ivan.
