Since San Diego Comic-Con has already been announced to be a virtual event yet again this summer, the convention creators wanted to plan something for the fall when an in-person event would be much more safe and easier to plan.

Netflix is hitting the court next month with Hoops, a new animated series starring Jake Johnson (New Girl, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse) as a foul-mouthed high school basketball coach who’s delusional enough to think that if he can lead his garbage team to victory, his entire pathetic life will start improving.
