Stephen Curry, ABC Team Up for Mini-Golf Competition Series


ABC Entertainment has picked up Holey Moley, a new extreme mini-golf competition show starring and executive produced by NBA star Stephen Curry.

The ten-episode show from Eureka Productions and Unanimous Media will showcase mini-golf lovers from around the country as they compete head-to-head through an obstacle golf course. Curry will serve as the resident expert on the course and appear in every episode. An original format created by Chris Culvenor of Eureka Productions, the show begins production this month in California.

Rob Riggle will act as the show’s color commentator, with Joe Tessitore giving the play-by-play and Jeanie Mai serving as sideline correspondent. Each episode consists of 12 contestants competing in three rounds of golf, with three finalists ultimately taking on “Mt. Holey Moley.” The winner will be awarded a $25,000 cash prize, “The Golden Putter” trophy and the Holey Moley plaid jacket. Themed holes and celebrity guests will be featured throughout the series.

Rob Mills, senior vice president of alternative series, specials and late night at ABC Entertainment, said: “Everyone has a favorite memory of playing miniature golf, whether it was as a child with your family, with a group of friends as a teenager, or on an awkward first date. Take that feeling, add high stakes competition and out-of-this-world challenges, and we have no doubt Holey Moley will stand alongside other golf classics like Caddyshack, Happy Gilmore and The Legend of Bagger Vance.”

“Unanimous is incredibly excited to partner with ABC on Holey Moley,” said Jeron Smith, co-founder and CEO of Unanimous Media. “We aim to use entertainment as a vehicle to bring families together, and this show will surely bring laughter and enjoyment to households around the country. Miniature golf is a staple pastime, and the show will be fun, intense and unpredictable. Our collective love of sports and family-centric entertainment made this a perfect project for our first television series. We’re excited to see what the competition brings.”

Culvenor, co-founder and co-CEO of Eureka and one of the show’s executive producers, added: “Eureka is thrilled to be working with ABC to take America’s love of miniature golf to the next level. It’s extreme and perfect family-fun. We can’t wait to unveil the most spectacular mini-golf course ever created. Teaming up with Stephen Curry and Unanimous Media makes it even more special. Stephen has changed the game of basketball forever, so we are beyond excited to join forces with him to transform miniature golf into an epic event.”
