After “The Last Dance” swept the nation, a 10-part series that relived Michael Jordan’s legendary career with the Chicago Bulls, it was announced that the Bucs’ quarterback Tom Brady will be the focus of a nine-part series that will debut in 2021, titled “Man In The Arena.”

Brady tweeted the series’ trailer on Thursday.

According to a report from Deadline.com, the docuseries will be co-produced by ESPN, 199 Productions – Brady’s new content company that he launched earlier this year – and Gotham Chopra, who also created and directed the “Tom vs. Time” series. Connor Schell, a co-creator and long-time producer for ESPN’s 30 For 30 series, will also be a part of the production team.

The series will document Brady’s historic run to nine Super Bowl appearances, including six Super Bowl victories, over his 20-year career with the New England Patriots, presumably in addition to his transition to the Bucs.

“The series will be Brady’s first-hand account of the most iconic moments of his NFL career, including each of his nine Super Bowl appearances as quarterback of the New England Patriots,” Deadline’s Mike Fleming Jr. said. “Also in there will be smaller, seemingly insignificant instances that became pivotal events and paved the path of the future Hall of Famer’s journey, which takes a new chapter after his move to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.”

“Realizing my potential has been what my career’s been all about,” Brady said in the series trailer. “Things that I’ve dreamed about have actually come true.”

Brady continued.

“It’s been a complete evolution. How I just kept kind of fighting and clawing to continue to power forward. You just keep putting one foot in front of the other and you keep trying to make progress, so when I look at over 20 years I say, ‘Look at how far I’ve come.’ But there’s not one step that I took where I realized how far I’ve come. Those series of steps that I’ve put together, I go, ‘Wow, that’s quite a journey.'”

Oh yeah. They were talking about it yesterday on the Boston sports talk show. Saying that a Brady tell all documentary like the last dance was inevitable. Because Tom can’t wait to tell his side of the story, and Bill can’t wait to tell his. And people will get to see just how bad that relationship got, and for how long it’s been deteriorating. That will be a must watch ! Rate this item:Thumb UpThumb DownSubmit Rating00 No votes yet. Please wait...

Me too! I just hate the fact that it’s next year, before he’s even retired. So that means it’s probably going to be a tamed down version. It probably won’t be a complete tell all. But believe me, when he’s retired, down the road, both him and Bill will be part of a real tell all. Like both blaming each other for everything that went down over the last decade in NE Rate this item:Thumb UpThumb DownSubmit Rating00 No votes yet. Please wait...

This documentary would come too early. Too many people are still in the business, so they want talk honestly. 2-5 Years after Brady retirement would be a great time, because more people can speak freely and the Brady legacy would feel more powerful Rate this item:Thumb UpThumb DownSubmit Rating00 No votes yet.

I’m looking forward to Tom, Manning, Phil, Tiger playing golf this weekend. Docuseries, like biographies should wait till after a career is over. Brady’s story isn’t finished yet. Rate this item:Thumb UpThumb DownSubmit Rating00 No votes yet. Please wait...

This documentary has to happen. Brady is a GOAT, and has a heck of a story. I mean, I just saw in this facts to know article that he has the most playoff TD’s all time. What a record to hold. And still be going at it! 2020-2021 is going to be a special season. Super Bowl or bust. https://prosportsoutlook.com/top-sports-facts-to-know-from-5-20-20/ Rate this item:Thumb UpThumb DownSubmit Rating00 No votes yet. Please wait...
