Tom Brady Is Working With ESPN on a 9-Part Series About His Life

After the runaway success of The Last Dance, ESPN has greenlit a nine-part documentary series about Tom Brady, the NFL quarterback superstar. Man in the Arena is coming in 2021, and producers hope to give the same treatment to Touchdown Tom’s career as it did to NBA GOAT Michael Jordan and his Chicago Bulls.

Details of the Upcoming Tom Brady Docuseries

The new series will be the QB’s firsthand account of the most iconic moments of his career in the NFL. As Tom Brady has nine Super Bowl appearances as the quarterback of the New England Patriots, the show will include nine episodes.

Viewers will also see smaller and what seem to be insignificant instances from Brady’s journey that will become pivotal events and pave the path of the future Hall of Famers’ journey, which takes a new chapter after his move to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Production & Distribution

Man In the Arena will reportedly air in 2021 on ESPN, but since the show is executive-produced by the same team behind The Last Dance, it’s likely that the series will also air on Netflix so that international viewers can also watch about the life of Tom Brady.

Brady is working on the series with ESPN and will be giving firsthand accounts of his career highlights throughout the nine-parter. In a recent statement, Tom Brady said that he’s really excited to be in business with ESPN and Disney.

Tom Brady has played in nine Super Bowls, winning 6 of them. He became a major celebrity throughout the USA, and he’s appeared on numerous talk shows. While he’s a living legend and star of American football, his name is only vaguely familiar to some British readers and probably not recognizable at all throughout the rest of Europe and Asia.

However, if the show airs on Netflix and follows the success of The Last Dance, Tom Brady may become a worldwide celebrity.
