The 7-episode weekly series showcases film students from the New England area who have created short sports films with the hope of winning $20,000 and a job opportunity at the network. Each episode will introduce two students, with the student-produced shorts posted at NESNnext.com.

Werner, Boston Red Sox Chairman and 24-time Emmy winner, and Falchuk, a native of Newton Mass. best known as the co-creator and showrunner of “Glee” and “American Horror Story,” will be responsible for coaching the finalists and picking a winner.

The project marks an ambitious undertaking for a regional sports network, especially one outside of New York or Los Angeles. “NESN Next Producer” co-creator and co-producer, Linda Pizzuti Henry, said that in addition to showing the films, the show will also zero in on the filmmakers on a personal level, highlighting their passion for New England sports.

“New England is a hotbed for young, creative minds and we wanted to highlight college filmmakers who are the next generation of storytellers from our area,” Henry said.
