Pitch Perfect actor Skylar Astin has just joined a brand new ABC show about the NBA. The TV series is set to be a buddy comedy about a basketball rookie who doesn't speak English, and who has a translator who doesn't understand basketball.

Skylar's character is a previous member of the Peace Corps who is now a teaching assistant living in his parents' basement. He becomes the translator for the new NBA recruit from Botswana, and they turn into besties on and off the court!

No word yet when the series will arrive – stay tuned! Does this sound like a show you want to watch?
