Strahan is executive producing a new ABC medical drama in development named The Front Line, Variety first reported.

The show, inspired by real-life stories, will follow a football player who transitions into a career in the medical field and works as a resident at a Pittsburgh hospital.

It’s a story close to Strahan, who also successfully transitioned from an NFL career into another field.

He may be one of America’s most beloved TV hosts now, but the star has come a long way since he first entered the public eye.

The 50-year-old was first known as a Super Bowl-winning NFL star, playing for the New York Giants for 15 seasons.

Strahan, who retired from the sport in 2008, was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2014.

He was a seven-time Pro Bowler, a two-time NFL sack leader and once named the league’s Defensive Player of the Year.

Following his retirement, Strahan successfully transitioned into a TV career, first appearing as an analyst for Fox NFL Sunday, and then on Live! with Kelly and Michael from 2012 to 2016.

Strahan then moved to his current full-time role at Good Morning America.

He has since became a staple of the morning talk show – which is why fans couldn’t help but notice his absence from the program this month.

During his sabbatical from the program, his co-stars Lara Spencer and T.J. Holmes filled in for him.

On Friday, March 11, Strahan returned to the daily live show, but he was once again absent on March 23 for unclear reasons.

A fan tweeted: “You think @michaelstrahan is ever going to return to the office? Extremely overrated!” after GMA posted a video on Twitter of easy-to-make lunch options for those returning to the office life.

Strahan’s production company SMAC Entertainment has helped create several shows already, including ABC’s game show The $100,000 Pyramid, which he hosts.
