In news that is surely not to draw an unbelievable amount of attention, which is surely not the point in the first place, Michigan, the BTN, and Amazon have announced they've partnered for as-yet-unnamed documentary to be released for Prime members in January. Press release ahoy:
The University of Michigan, The Montag Group, Big Ten Network and Amazon have partnered on a behind-the-scenes documentary series about the 2017 Michigan football season that will be released on Amazon Prime in January 2018.
"We are proud to partner with Amazon Prime Video in documenting our University of Michigan student-athletes' daily experiences and the lifelong lessons learned both on the football field and in the classroom," said Michigan's J. Ira and Nicki Harris Family Head Football Coach Jim Harbaugh. "We welcome judgment! We embrace this opportunity to showcase our 2017 University of Michigan football team to a vast audience around the world."
"We think documenting this season will reveal that our university and football program are unique environments that equip our student-athletes for success in both academics and athletics," said Warde Manuel, U-M's Donald R. Shepherd Director of Athletics. "We are excited to work with great partners and to break new ground as the first collegiate program to participate in this digital space."
The series will chronicle the happenings of the 2017 season with exclusive, behind-the-scenes footage from college football's winningest program. The cameras will follow Harbaugh, assistant coaches and players throughout the entire season, including access to practice, the university's academic environment and a look into their lives off the field and in the Ann Arbor community.
The BTN has done excellent work with documentary-style shows like The Journey, and Amazon's All Or Nothing series chronicling NFL teams the past couple seasons have been of similar quality. Time to hit up your parents for that Prime password.
