Big Shot is about a coach who gets fired and takes a job at a fancy girls' school. And its cast is getting bigger.

Disney Plus isn't all Star Wars, Marvel and Pixar -- its library will get John Stamos comedy-drama Big Shot too. The Fuller House star was cast the "temperamental" basketball coach in the 10-episode series coming to the streaming service, along with Community's Yvette Nicole Brown and Unreal actor Shiri Appleby.

The show will see Stamos' character Marvyn getting fired and being forced to take a teaching and coaching job at an elite all-girls private high school. Brown (who's also in the Disney Plus Lady and the Tramp remake) will play the school's dean, while Appleby will be Stamos' assistant coach.

Rounding out the cast are Richard Robicheaux, Sophia Mitri Schloss, Nell Verlaque, Tiana Le, Monique Green, Tisha Custodio and Cricket Wampler. It's written and executive-produced by Big Little Lies creator David E. Kelley and iZombie's Dean Lorey.

We don't know when Big Shot will hit Disney Plus, but production starts on Nov. 7. The $7-a-month streaming service launches Nov. 12 and has plenty of other shows to keep you interested.
