On the heels of the success of the “Last Dance,” it was announced on Thursday that former Patriots QB Tom Brady will be getting his own nine-part docuseries on ESPN coming in 2021.
It will be called “The Man in the Arena.”
Brady released a trailer on Thursday as well.
I have quoted Theodore Roosevelt’s “Man in the Arena” speech since I saw it painted on our weight room wall at UM in 1995. It’s a constant reminder to ignore the noise, buckle my chinstrap, and battle through whatever comes my way. Coming 2021 on @espn! https://t.co/nm9SdFYB7D
“The series is being co-produced by ESPN along with Brady’s new company 199 Productions and Gotham Chopra for Religion of Sports. The series will be shepherded by Connor Schell, the Senior VP & Executive Producer ESPN Films & Original Content who is a veteran of the network’s superb 30 for 30 series, and executive producer of The Last Dance as well as the upcoming Bruce Lee docu Be Water.”
“I’m excited to have my company 199 Productions be in business with ESPN and Disney along with our Religion of Sports partners to launch this new series that gives an inside look into the championship moments I’ve been blessed to experience,” Brady said. “Through the series, we’re defining the key moments and challenges that were seemingly insurmountable, but through hard work and perseverance, became career-defining triumphs, in both victory and defeat. ” Brady adds, “This compelling and powerful show will entertain, inspire and have you on the edge of your seat. We can’t wait to share it with the world.”
