ESPN recently concluded its broadcast The last dance, his multi-part documentary on Michael Jordan and his time with Chicago Bulls by director Jason Hehir, and now he’s preparing a similar series (which is essentially the same thing) on another icon of the a sport that is extremely well-liked in a specific region of the country, but is considered somewhat overrated everywhere else. It comes from Deadline, which indicates that the production company Religion Of Sports and the 199 Productions of Tom Brady are working with ESPN on Man in the arena, a nine-part documentary series on – you won’t believe it – Tom Brady.
In other words, about four days later The last dance, Tom Brady literally threw a slightly deflated soccer ball through a window at ESPN headquarters and shouted “Make one for me now!” “(We don’t know if that literally arrived but we can to pretend that it happened). Also, for the record, Jordan participated in the The last dance, but at least he did his thing first.
Deadline said Man in the arena will be based on Brady’s “first-hand account of the most iconic moments in his NFL career”, as well as “smaller and seemingly insignificant cases that have become pivotal events”. (Sounds like a strange note.) In a statement, Brady said the series would define “the key moments and challenges that were seemingly insurmountable, but through hard work and persistence, have become triumphs defining the career, both in victory and defeat “- again, as it seems strangely unclear, he talks about his own life here.
Man in the arena will be featured next year on ESPN, how nostalgic everyone will be for years when Tom Brady was still playing football, like 2000 – ????. Those were good times, right? Well, 2020 has been a piece of shit, and 2016 hasn’t been great, but maybe the next few years in Tampa Bay will be fine? The doc will barely be able to cover them, as it comes out in 2021, but maybe it will end with Brady curing the coronavirus or something. It would give him a head start over Jordan.
