Nine-Part Documentary Series About Tom Brady To Follow The Last Dance
Hot off the back of ESPN's 10-part documentary about Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls, the network is planning a similar documentary about the NFL's golden boy: Tom Brady.
People who loved The Last Dance will surely enjoy Man in the Arena, which will explore how Brady became one of the most successful American football players of all time.
We've been told to expect nine episodes from the upcoming series, which will delve into everything in his life, including the stuff that happens on and off the field.
That means we'll likely get an insight into all the dramas around each Super Bowl, the various teams he's played with over the years, his family life, and how he feels about the sport.
Brady released a statement, saying: "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."

It was clear that Jordan had a big role in the crafting of The Last Dance, however it's unclear how much involvement Brady will have on the series about his life.
It will be produced by Brady's production company 199 Productions, but not much more is known whether he will have creative control over what ends up on screen.
ESPN Films executive producer Connor Schell said about the upcoming series: "Nine Super Bowl appearances over the course of 20 years is an achievement on an unmatched level.
"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Tom Brady as he reflects on each of those nine, season-long journeys and the pivotal moments that defined them.
"Gotham Chopra is a highly skilled filmmaker who I am confident will bring to life this story of an icon in a new and revealing way."
ESPN says the series will premiere next year, so we have a little while to wait until we can feast our ears and eyes on the finished product.
