The Dallas Cowboys are one of the NFL’s most historic franchises. Mainly due to their mainstream appeal back in the day that donned them into “America’s Team.”
It’s still one of the most popular organizations amongst fans and Jerry Jones’ presence plays a large part of its history as well.
In fact, it seems the league aims to take advantage of that popularity in a unique way.
According to Front Office Sports, “the NFL and Skydance Studios are developing their first joint project. A docuseries on the Dallas Cowboys and the journey of owner Jerry Jones.”
What makes this pairing fascinating, is that Skydanec Studios is the production company behind the wildly popular film, Top Gun: Maverick.

Even if you’re not a Cowboys fan, this seems like a pretty solid idea for the league’s first docuseries.
Jerry Jones bought the franchise back in 1989 for $140 million. Today, the Cowboys are now valued at a whopping $8 billion, per Statista.
Considering Jones owns possibly the most valuable sports franchise in the world, it only makes sense to create a docuseries about his journey as the team owner.
A release date on the Jerry Jones docuseries is unknown for now, as reports claim the project was just recently green-lit.
For that reason, we’re probably a few years away from this series. With that said, keep an eye out for more updates, as more information about the project will eventually come to light.
