Only a few days removed from the Super Bowl, Apple has announced that it is stepping on to the gridiron. The company has ordered 'The Dynasty', a new 10-part docuseries about the New England Patriots, which will join its catalogue of unscripted programming on TV+
The series will be produced by Brian Grazer and Ron Howard’s Imagine Documentaries and NFL Films and is based on the New York Times bestselling book by author Jeff Benedict. Benedict spent two years inside the organization with unprecented access to the team and documented their historic 20-year run during the Brady-Belichick-Kraft era.
The documentary series, directed by Emmy-nominated filmmaker Matthew Hamachek ('Tiger'), will go deeper and will draw on thousands of hours of never-before-seen video footage and audio files from the Patriots organization’s archive. The filmmakers have also been given access to the organization during the 2021 season and are conducting hundreds of interviews with past and present Patriots players, coaches and executives, along with league officials and the arch rivals of the most dominant sports dynasty of the 21st century.
There's no word yet on when 'The Dynasty' will touchdown on Apple TV+, but it will bolster a growing slate of sports content on the platform which will also soon feature the upcoming four-part Magic Johnson docuseries 'They Call Me Magic', which premieres April 22nd.
What to Read: Ahead of the new series, Jeff Benedict's critically-acclaimed book of the same name is available on Apple Books.
