Lilli Kay Joins Owen Wilson In Apple Golf Comedy Series

EXCLUSIVE: Lilli Kay (Your Honor, Yellowstone) is set as a lead opposite Owen Wilson and Peter Dager in Apple TV+’s 10-episode comedy created, written by and executive produced by Jason Keller.

The untitled comedy stars Wilson as Pryce Cahill, an over-the-hill, ex-pro golfer whose career was derailed prematurely 20 years ago. After he gets fired from his job at an Indiana sporting goods store and his wife walks out on him, Pryce hedges his bets entirely on a troubled 17-year-old golf phenom, played by Dager.
