Freeform developing Latinx dramedy Golden Boy from On My Block co-creators

  • Eddie Gonzalez and Jeremy Haft, who created Netflix's On My Block with Lauren Iungerich, are reteaming on a half-hour dramedy revolving around Ricky “The Big Hurt” Hurtado, "a generational NFL prospect with an ego to match," reports Deadline. "He suffers a very public and humiliating flameout so returns home as a failure with no clear future. The Big Hurt is determined to rebuild his fractured relationships with his family and the community that once showered him in love and support, but now hate him. The half-hour dramedy is described as being Compton-inspired with some Latino Elmore Leonard flavor. It was inspired by Gonzalez’s life growing up in Compton and Lynwood."
