Peyton Manning’s New ESPN+ Show ‘Peyton’s Places’ Helps Celebrate NFL’s 100th Season And Looks Awesome AF
Peyton Manning is one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history, but he’s actually just as entertaining in front of the camera or a mic as he was tossin’ around the ol’ pigskin. That’s one of the reasons why so many networks are hoping to snag the future Hall of Famer for their broadcast booth, because Manning delivers football expertise with wit, dad humor and a knowledge of the game like no one else.
While we’ll all wait to see if Peyton Manning eventually ends up in a broadcast booth, one thing we don’t need to wait for is seeing him in front of the camera. That’s because, thanks to exclusive new programming from ESPN+, Manning’s getting his own original series called “Peyton’s Places,” which pays tribute to the 100th season of NFL football — and the show looks both awesome, unique and hilarious.
According to the official press release from ESPN, Peyton Manning’s new show is a 30-part documentary that revisits “seminal moments in NFL history through conversations with former players, coaches and other key figures about football history and its cultural impact.” The series, which is produced by NFL Films in collaboration with ESPN+, will debut on Monday, July 15 of this year, with Part 1 available exclusively on the leading direct-to-consumer sports streaming service ESPN+. Parts 2-5 will debut in subsequent months through January 2020.
Here’s a quick little teaser from ESPN PR’s Twitter account detailing the new Peyton Manning show, “Peyton’s Places”.
