Just a few weeks ago, Inside the Magic reported that filming for Disney+’s upcoming series, Big Shot, was temporarily suspended after a COVID-19 test came back positive earlier this week. However, not long after it was reported that the test was a false positive.

Big Shot is a 10-episode series that follows a temperamental college basketball coach, played by John Stamos, who ends up getting fired from his job. He then is forced to take on a teaching and coaching job at an elite all-girls private high school. The official description reads:

Big Shot is an upcoming American sports dramedy streaming television series developed by Dean Lorey and David E. Kelley based on an original idea by Brad Garrett for Disney+ starring John Stamos in the lead role.
