NFL Network Will Launch New Series To Accompany Football Season

NFL Network will launch an eight-episode documentary series about the importance of football in a small town along with two one-hour specials and a slate of returning programs in time with its ongoing coverage of NFL football in 2015.

The docu-series, “Football Town,” will explore small towns and cities where football is of paramount importance. The first season will debut  Thursday, September 17 following the Thursday Night Football postgame show and focus on  Barrow, Alaska, and the Barrow High School Whalers football team. Following the premiere episode on September 17, “Football Town: Barrow, Alaska” will air Tuesdays at 8:30 PM ET on NFL Network, with an encore Thursday following the Thursday Night Football postgame show.

A condensed version of the first episode will be available to more than 16 million followers of the NFL and NFL Network on Facebook beginning Sept. 15. The condensed version of episode one will remain viewable up to the premiere of the full version of episode one on September 17 following the conclusion of “Thursday Night Football.”

The network will feature two one-hour specials: “Catching Odell,” and the exclusive NFL Films special “Do Your Job: Bill Belichick and the 2014 Patriots.” In addition to the new original programming, NFL Network will return the Emmy-nominated series “Undrafted” for a second season, along with the fifth season of “A Football Life” and the one-hour show, “America’s Game.”

All original programming shows and series will be available on demand following their appearance on NFL Network in two ways: through a viewer’s cable or satellite providers on demand offering, and digitally through NFL Media’s NFL Game Pass subscription product.
