From their final college season through the 2011 NFL Draft, viewers will share in the unique access, dramatic storylines and a peek inside their lives as they look to fulfill the dream of becoming an NFL quarterback.
“Ken and I have collaborated on numerous projects over the years and this just seemed like another perfect fit,” explained Jonathan Hock of Hock Films. “Jake and Tyrod have willingly allowed us into their lives on and off the field which makes for compelling programming.”
“Fans can watch these incredible athletes each week on ESPN,” said Ken Rosen. “We’re taking them deeper, providing a unique and unparalleled look into the locker room, the meeting room and the huddle as well as exclusively following them through the preparation and demands through the draft.”
