If you’ve been pining for more Peyton Manning on your television, you’re in luck.
On Monday, ESPN announced a 30-episode documentary series with the two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback called “Peyton’s Places” that will revisit key moments in NFL history as part of the league’s 100th anniversary.
Debuts in July
The series debuts July 15 on ESPN+, the network’s streaming service, and will be presented in five chapters of six episodes each.
Parts 2-5 will debut each month after, through January 2020, and ABC and ESPN will air “compilations,” recapping each episode.
Manning is also an executive producer of the series. In a statement on the network’s announcement, “This is a journey through 100 years of history, visiting the people and places that have made the NFL what it is. From throwing a football off a skyscraper to re-enacting the Immaculate Reception and running Elvis Presley’s football plays, every episode on ESPN+ will surprise even the most die-hard fan.”
It’s believed that ESPN would love to have Manning in the booth for “Monday Night Football,” and extending its partnership with him – Manning, NFL Films and ESPN collaborated on the Xs and Os show “Detail” last year with Kobe Bryant’s production company – adds to the belief that will come to pass.
Billiards with Namath, Corn Flakes with Eli
ESPN’s release says Manning has traveled all over the United States for almost a year, “visiting people and places that have played an important part in the making of the NFL – highlighting memorable events, teams, players and trends over the past century.”
Highlights of the series include:
* Manning and Joe Namath re-watch the coaches’ film from Super Bowl III during a game of billiards;
* At the 49ers History Museum, Manning and Joe Montana break down “The Catch,” while Steve Young talks about the dearth of left-handed quarterbacks in the NFL today;
* Manning and his brother, New York Giants quarterback Eli, visit the kitchen where the Lombardi Trophy was created using a Corn Flakes box;
* Rich Karlis, the last kicker to kick barefoot full-time, shows Manning how it’s done;
* Manning and the 1972 Dolphins pop champagne to commemorate the only undefeated season of the Super Bowl era.
