Netflix to Add New NFL Docuseries RECEIVER

By Movieguide® Contributor

The NFL is coming to Netflix again with a new docuseries.

Following the success of QUARTERBACK, RECEIVER is slated to hit the streaming service this summer.

“The natural progression is from a pass to a catch, so we’re excited to dive into the RECEIVER world after the success of our QUARTERBACK series. NFL Films and Omaha Productions have delivered again in finding unique and dynamic athletes who will further highlight the drama of this sport on and off the field,” said Gabe Spitzer, Vice President of nonfiction sports at Netflix.

The docuseries will feature receivers from across the NFL, including Las Vegas Raiders’ Davante Adams, Minnesota Vikings’ Justin Jefferson, San Francisco 49ers’ George Kittle and Deb Samuel and Detroit Lions’ Amon-Ra St. Brown.

Per the NFL, “The series is produced by NFL Films, Omaha Productions and 2PM Productions, with executive producers Ross Ketover, Pat Kelleher and Keith Cossrow from NFL Films, executive producers Peyton Manning and Jamie Horowitz from Omaha Productions, and executive producer Patrick Mahomes from 2PM Productions.”

While QUARTERBACK was a huge success with viewers, Manning, a Hall of Fame quarterback, said he had trouble finding other quarterbacks to participate in its second season.

“To use a cheesy analogy, we’re definitely in the two-minute drill here,” he said. “I’d love for someone to call us back and say, ‘I want to do it.’ I had three starting quarterbacks tell me no yesterday, so I’m swallowing my pride.”

However, he’s hopeful for a different result with RECEIVER.

“We are excited to be working again with Netflix and NFL Films to give fans unprecedented access to what it’s like to play receiver at the highest level,” Manning expressed in a statement. “As we did with QUARTERBACK, we look forward to telling the stories of five incredible receivers, each with their unique personality, skillset, and motivation for what drives them to be the best.”

NFL Films supervising producer Joe Zucco said, “We were thrilled last summer to see audiences all over the world diving into the lives of NFL quarterbacks. We believe the extraordinary skills, dedication and passion of the NFL’s great wide receivers — and one tight end — will make a perfect follow-up.”
