A docuseries taking a first-hand look at each of Tom Brady’s Super Bowl appearances and directed by Religion of Sports’ Gotham Chopra is set to debut on ESPN+ on Nov. 16.

In Man in the Arena: Tom Brady, Brady, one of the greatest NFL quarterbacks of all time, will deconstruct the milestones of his career along with other notable figures, going over each of his 10 Super Bowl appearances episode by episode, delving into his seven wins and his three losses.

The series will feature exclusive interviews with Brady’s family, including his wife Gisele Bündchen, as well as former teammates and opponents on the field including Peyton Manning, Rob Gronkowski, Michael Strahan, Richard Sherman, Randy Moss, Drew Bledsoe, Julian Edelman and more.

The docuseries is co-produced by ESPN, Religion of Sports, 199 Productions and NFL Films.

Religion of Sports was founded in 2016 by Brady, Choprah and Michael Strahan.

“Tom Brady has been a dominant force in the NFL, and in the broader culture, for two decades now. No player in recent memory has been more analyzed or debated, more beloved or reviled,” Chopra said in a statement promoting the project. “Man in the Arena is an examination of his impact on and off the field, and I’m eager for that discussion to continue around the series.”

The series’ first episode will be available Nov. 16 on ESPN+ with new episodes following weekly. Each episode will discuss a single Super Bowl appearance, and will be followed by a post-show Inside the Arena, hosted by Tedy Bruschi and Field Yates. After the Arena, hosted by Shae Cornette, Jason Fitz and Skubie Mageza, will also stream to the ESPN app and ESPN’s Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages on Wednesdays after each episode. A Man in the Arena podcast series looking at Brady’s career, hosted by Chopra and produced by Religion of Sports, will also debut on Nov. 16.

“Tom Brady went from being selected 199th overall in the 2000 NFL Draft to leading one of the greatest dynasties in sports, and he still isn’t done,” said Brian Lockhart, senior vice president of ESPN+ original content and ESPN Films. “That’s just the kind of story we love to tell: one that’s epic and sweeping on one hand, and human and complex on the other.”
