Brian O'Brian is an Italian-American series of television shorts airing on Disney Channel. The series is co-written and directed by Danny Kaplan and stars Brian Stepanek, who also co-writes; original score by Stuart Balcomb, and produced in Cologno Monzese near Milan, Italy. Individual episodes are quick comedy sketches, 2–4 minutes in length. Much like almost all of Disney's modern-day television comedy programming, the show uses a laugh track. The main character Brian is inspired by the physical comedy of such silent-screen greats as Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton.
Sean Maher (TV's "Party of Five") and Mekhi Phifer (Soul Food) star in this excellent remake of the1971 Emmy Award(r)-winning drama about the friendship between football players Brian Piccolo and GaleSayers. When Gale Sayers joins the Chicago Bears in 1965, the running back is befriended by fellow rookie Brian Piccolo, a brash young man whose personality is the exact opposite of the stoic Sayers.As their friendship begins, the two compete for starting positions on the team, but Sayers' talent far outshines Piccolo's and he quickly rises to the top of the game. When they become roommates, their friendship deepens, and when Sayers injures his knee it is Piccolo who encourages him to get backin shape and back in the game - if only so Piccolo can compete against him on an even playing field. Both men become better ball players because of - and in spite of - each other, and when Piccolo quickly begins his descent into illness, they form a bond that will last forever.
