As if he isn’t busy enough preparing for the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, which if he were to lead his Tampa Bay Bucs to a win would put him in his 10th Super Bowl game.
43-year old NFL legend Tom Brady somehow has found some extra time to launch, and lead his own production company, and the future Hall-of-Famer apparently wants to see more action.
Brady, along with jack-of-all-trades Michael Strahan, and filmmaker Gotham Chopra, are the founders of the media company they named Religion of Sports—because, well, that’s where they go every Sunday to worship. The media company has had some early success producing sports related shows and even have an Emmy award under the belt.
But Tom Brady and Company are competitors by nature, and they want to play with the titans of the television and motion picture industry. That’s why Religion of Sports just announced they are ready to tackle the world of scripted TV and film. They haven’t said which projects they are considering, but we’re thinking they are likely to be more block-buster and less indie.
Religion of Sports already has credits filling up their IMBD page including Kobe Bryant’s Muse, Showtime’s Shut Up and Dribble, Apple TV+’s The Greatness Code and Facebook Watch’s Tom vs. Time. ESPN also ordered a docuseries on Brady called Man in the Arena which will be a first-hand replay of how Tom remembers pivotal moments in his career.
Will he have another incredible career highlight to add to that docuseries after Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers? Hey, it’s Tom Brady, would you ever bet against him?
