This will probably not be the last time that we announce a new show based on the life of Tom Brady. Particularly if the man finds a way to continue winning Super Bowls! ESPN+ has announced that they are releasing a new series around Tom Brady’s historic career. What’s essentially a bit odd about the whole ordeal is that they announced the series just a couple of days before it’s set to start airing on their ESPN+ platform. The series premiere of, Man In The Arena, (the title for what is basically the Tom Brady series) will take place on November 16th! The network has announced that is has plans to then continue to release new episodes every Tuesday.
What We Can Expect To See In Man In The Arena
The ESPN sponsored NY Post story says the series,
“Will showcase Tom like never before, deconstructing the milestones of his legendary career, mining the psychological and emotional terrain of each victory and defeat.”
In reading this there was some hope for the football nerds out there that this would be a similar series to what ESPN was doing with Kobe Bryant’s Detail before his untimely passing. In that particular series we saw Kobe breakdown basketball plays masterfully. Way better than Tony Romo in the CBS booth. From the looks of things though this Tom Brady series is going to follow a blueprint that could be considered similar to what we saw in “The Last Dance“.
Covering Tom Brady’s New England Years
As things stand we know for a fact that the original intentions by ESPN is to create a 10 part series that will follow Tom Brady’s career in New England. Maybe they’ll sneak in a final episode on the most recent Super Bowl run with Tampa Bay. The series is being branded as a way to finally showcase a more emotional side of Tom Brady. This wouldn’t be the first time though that Tom let TV cameras into his life. He famously had another documentary shot about him titled Tom vs Time. Spoiler alert, Tom is inexplicably betting time by a landslide in that game! This was the series where Tom revealed all sorts of weird things about his daily routine. Along with the fact that he has a bit of a fetish for avocado ice cream.
A Star Studded Lineup Of Guest Will Show Out For Tom Brady
This 10 part series, as we mentioned, will get more of a biopic/Last Dance treatment. Let’s hope for Tom’s sake that none of the people that he invites on the show will turn on him. Just like Scottie Pippen has turned on Michael Jordan after his Last Dance portrayal. The man who got hurt and allowed the Tom Brady story to being, Drew Bledsoe has signed on to appear on the show. As has Tom Brady rival Michael Strahan. Former Patriots teammates Tedy Bruschi, Randy Moss, Rodney Harrison and Rob Gronkowski are also on board. The Brady family headlined by Gisele Bündchen are set to make appearances as well!
