CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A couple of friends playing Fantasy Football in Chicago - for many of us, it's the story of our lives. But for actor Mark Duplass, it's the story behind one of the most popular comedies on television: The League.

For Duplass, setting the show in Chicago makes all the difference.

Not only is our city the star of the show – so is our team. Several Chicago Bears have appeared on the League: From Matt Forte and Jay Cutler, to even Jim McMahon.

As for the real world of Fantasy Football, Duplass has a few thoughts on which Bears he is considering for his team when he plays against the rest of the cast.

Fantasy Football is a multi-billion dollar industry, more than 33 million people play every year.

That's the reality behind the fantasy.
